In the context of service of process, and reinforcing its recent holding about the distinction between individuals and entities in Prado v. Nichols, No. 05-20-01092-CV (Feb. 25, 2022) (mem. op.), the Fifth Court rejected a judgment based on the return of service in Mesa SW Management v. BBVA USA:
“Appellee used an entity to receive the process and a natural person to serve the process; [Tex. R. Civ. P.] 105 does not allow this. Rule 105 requires one person perform both actions. Because the process was delivered to an entity but a natural person executed and returned the same, we conclude appellee failed to strictly comply with rule 105.” No. 05-20-01091-CV (Feb. 24, 2022) (mem. op.) (emphasis added).
