In a restricted appeal: “[T]he face of the record shows that appellee filed suit against a Texas corporation named either Joe Prado DBA J.P. Enterprises or Joe Prado ‘JP Enterprises.’ The return of service shows that Joe Prado was served but does not indicate his capacity to receive service on behalf of the purported corporation. Moreover, no other portion of the record indicates Joe Prado’s authority to receive service on behalf of the corporation. We conclude the face of the record fails to show strict compliance with the rules governing return of service; thus, the trial court lacked jurisdiction to render a default judgment against JP Enterprises.” Prado v. Nichols, No. 05-20-01092-CV (Feb. 25, 2022) (mem. op.) (citation omitted, emphasis added).
