    Executor a felon

    What is the name of your state? TX
    My step-mother was listed as the Executrix of my dad's estate, however, she is a 3 time convicted felon. My ex-attorney was supposed to file a motion to prohibit this from happening, but he seemed to have let that slip through the cracks.

    Is there anything I can file having her thrown out as executrix AFTER the fact?
