Michael T. Shelby
Michael Taylor "Mike" Shelby (November 5, 1958 – July 18, 2006) was a prominent Houston lawyer who served as the United States attorney for the Southern District of Texas from 2002–2005. He was appointed U.S. attorney by President George W. Bush, on the recommendation of Republican U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison.
Shelby resigned as U.S. attorney in 2005 for personal financial reasons and became a full partner in the Houston firm of Fulbright & Jaworski, named in part for the late Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski. He headed the firm's white-collar defense practice. Thereafter, he was stricken with cancer, which had reached into his spine. According to the Harris County coroner, an autopsy revealed that Shelby ended his life by firing a handgun to his chest.
