Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., Doyle, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Danilson, S.J.  (12 pages)

            Brett Edwards appeals the district court’s denial of his challenge to the validity of an out-of-state judgment.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court erred in concluding the issue of personal jurisdiction must be determined by the Texas court.  Because Troy Hack failed to establish Brett Edwards was served with notice of the Texas lawsuit or had any contacts with the state of Texas, we reverse and remand for entry of an order vacating the foreign judgment against Brett Edwards.
