Stuart Irby files for divorce

Stuart Irby filed for divorce against Karen Irby in Hinds County Chancery Court on May 17, 2011. The file is sealed but it must be noted its been one year since Mrs. Irby pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of two doctors in 2009.

I can't believe it's already been a year. I hope Stuart is getting the support he needs to get better. Though I know he has been unbelievably capable of poor behavior, but I really think he has something wrong with him, like organic brain damage or maybe a stroke. I would have to rule that out completely first.

I drive by the ladies Facility all the time, and sometimes I really do think of Karen in there. By now she has time to figure out the best way out of this situation, so she and her children have a shot at a normal, decent life.

Stu has some of his buddies' wives to shag. Of course he's filed. Happy days are here again!

How long can people keep apologizing for Stuart, anyway?

It's called a women's correctional facility. I doubt if there is one single "lady" incarcerated there.

The statute makes it automatic when u divorce a spouse who is incarcerated

11:06, that is lucky for Karen. It is one thing to have to live with the aftermath of that horrible accident that she was responsible for, but to think of having to remain married to a winner like Stuart for one more day, enough already, the woman has suffered enough!

Irby will have his day, we may never see it, but he will have his day.

Luckily Stuart had to file his divorce in chancery court and not circuit court, so at least he can get a decent judge. He divorces were allowed in circuit court I bet Jeff "Jerry Falwell" Weill would not grant them. Anyone hear that that guy forces people to be involved in a Christian prayer before court? Guess he forgot to read the Constitution in law school.

So what 1:47. He is an awesome judge. Eat your loser heart out.

1:47, yep, in Law School, they tried to convince us that "freedom OF religion" was actually to be construed as "freedom FROM religion." You must've gone to MC Law School with me, huh? (I'd be willing to bet YOU'VE never read the Constitution. If you had, you'd have to admit that what you're claiming is clearly not in that document)

There are crazy and/or stupid judges in Hinds County Chancery court, too. Namely Wise and Singletary.

Hey, why is it that, since day one following the wreck, everyone simply must point out that the two victims were doctors? Was this tragic accident somehow MORE tragic because the victims had chosen a respected educational path? It's always been conspicuous to me that doctors are treated completely differently than any other members of society. Are they to be respected? Maybe so, but why all the fawning because they chose to pursue a different educational route? You DO acknowledge that that's the only difference between them and the "regular" people, right?

2:30: where in the constitution does it say that judges can force people in their courtroom to engage in a prayer?

Anonymous said...

It doesn't and HE doesn't dumbass (force).

I damn sure hope they take his boats keys away from him!

2:54: I bet you haven't even been in his courtroom. Ask all the prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys that practice in there and they will tell you Emir Weill does just that. He told one lawyer "either join in or lead the prayer." not shocked you went to MC because you probably couldn't get into Ole Miss. The only reason to pay twice the price for a law school education.

3:40 not a good link. Don't waste our time.

3:28: Please. I got into both and chose MC. Some people, I guess not you, get scholarships. Also some people choose to stay in Jackson instead of moving up to Oxford.

2:37 You seem ignorant of the fact that it costs tens of thousands (maybe hundreds by now) per doctor to educate each MD. Who pays for that - everybody! Taxpayers whose money supports the research grants that pay some faculty, patients whose fees pay some faculty, foundations and charities and individuals who make contributions that support research, patient care, or students, and students through their tuition.

Why is this acceptable? Because society expects to get 35 - 40 years of service per doctor after they graduate. The UMMC resident was im Family Medicine, where I have heard the average doc follows about 1200 patients per years. Multiply that by 35 or 40 and you see where society expects to get a return on their collective investment by preventing disease or helping people return to health when they are ill or injured.

The loss of these two doctors lives before either got set up in a practice but after they each incurred this huge expense to society is an enormous waste that affects each and ervy person who pays taxes, donates to charity, or occasionally gets sick and expects to die someday.

As for your other rather uninformed points, it's not just the "educational choice" or whatever you called it. Today I told a couple their adorable infant may have a hereditary eye disease that will lead to blindness because there is no effective treatment. Then I consoled a woman who is dealing with the fact that, for the second time in her life, her very much wanted fetus no longer had a heartbeat. Do you think the job requires the same skill set as, say, stacking cans of beans at Kroger?

Of course, some MDs are an embarassment to the profession. But intelligent people recognize the unique role that _good_ doctors play in society. As compared to, say, whatever Stuart Irby has contributed to society ;-)

4:50: I understand the "I don't want to leave Jackson" argument but Ole Miss is a less expensive much better law school than MC. Doesn't make much sense to pay twice as much for less is my point.

My preacher recently told me over a glass of wine that he had heard from his daughter and her husband who live there that the locals now call Oxford "New Jackson." That is funny stuff _ if you live in Jackson and are a Bear fan, you simply MUST have a condo in "New Jackson"/ It's a status thing, why I'm not sure.

Anonymous said...

7:54, it may not be a status issue at all. It may be that people here in greater Jackson wish to have a condo in one of the coolest cities in America. Oxford has it all. Go there and see. I would LIVE THERE, had I gone to school there.

MSU Graduate 1983. (Really)

Anonymous said...

While this topic sure has jumped completely off track, I can't understand why people would buy a condo in Oxford. Sure it may be a nice place to live, but it's not like you can rent it out during the week and use it on the weekends. It is just one big money pit.

Then again I don't understand having a cabin at the Neshoba County Fair, but I've seen a fair cabin become more of an issue during a divorce case than custody of the children.

My boss lives in the Jackson area and has both a condo in Oxford and a Neshoba fair cabin. It really makes me question his sanity.

Anonymous said...

9:35. If you have to ask how much it costs and to maintain, you are NOT a prospect. The people buying them are not concerned with that.

Must have been a slow news day in Jackson. ;)

Stuart should have divorced Karen years ago. If he had, the car wreck wouldn't have happened, two doctors still alive.

Fate had a different turn. I guess their fate was one that each had to learn a lesson. Sadly, her greed to have Irby money thru producing a child, who now has a terrible situation to grow up in; and his, out of stupidity, not recognizing that K was a gold digger from the get go and falling into her trap.

Now, many lives have been effected horribly. She doesn't have his money, he doesn't have his brain and the child is the one loosing.

Jeff Weill is the best thing that has happened to jackson. He did a great job on the council,but he was outnumbered. He told me that he can do more for this city as a judge. He is determined to get the thugs out of here. I guarantee you that you will not get a powder puff sentence with him. If you carjack somebody, jeff will not suspend any time. Your sorry self will sit in prison as long as the law allows. As for bringing God into the courtroom, that is the best thing I have heard. When you take God out just see what happens. A prime example would be our public schools. Jeff is a fine man, and I wish the majority of judges out there had his integrity. Our legal system would be much better.

11:43. HALLELUIA and thank you.

What did Weill actually accomplish on the Jackson Council?

Anonymous said...

He tried to get some sense of
accountability in city government. However, it doesnt take a genius to see the makeup of the council that he was fighting an uphill battle. I mean Kenny Stokes is the worst excuse for a leader. I can guarantee you that if the City Council had half of Jeff's integrity, this city would not be in the shape we are in at this time. Just for instance, Jeff tried to do something about the money drain they call Jatran. I think he figured out that we could have bought the few people who use the system a car and a gas card and still save a ton of money. Also, he tried to stop the scam the city employees had with their own fuel cards. Nobody wanted to clean up govt., so he can clean up the thugs by handing down harsh sentences every day. I know Jeff and I know his heart is in the right place. He could easily just say screw Jackson, move to Madison and continue to make a great living as a fine lawyer. The citizens of Jackson need more people like Jeff Weill.

Great judges are aware of, of take seriously, their duty to uphold the constitution including the First Amendment. If Weill is having prayer in open court, he is not a great judge.

bill said...

Has this non-story about Stuart Irby really turned into a debate about the First Amendment and Jeff Weill? Well, if you insist...The First Amendment doesn't say you can't pray in public, even in a courtroom. Just because the judge and others in the room are praying doesn't mean that you have to. Bow your head, close your eyes and take a quick nap and the joke will be on the judge. Although I'm not an attorney, I've been in enough courtrooms to know that you don't piss off the judge if you can keep from it. Bill Billingsley

Anonymous said...

No Bill, but life will always have anonymous, chicken shit bloggers like 12:16. 12:16 here is another thing he did that little, anonymous pissants like you will never do....HE SERVED and didn't have to.

He also served with dignity and represented his ward well, in a den of absolute neanderthals. What the phuque have you ever done in your lonely little nothing life except blog about other people's efforts, in the secret serenity of your dark, demented life?

Rebekah said...

But you posted anonymous...so are you referring to yourself as well?

Anonymous said...

I agree with Rebekah. 4:06 it's funny that you are attacking anonymous bloggers when you, yourself, are blogging anonymously! You must be a log cabin republican and disapprove of your own lifestyle. Maybe you and Herr Weill can go pray about it.

Is 4:06 really calling the voters of Ward 1 a "den of absolute neanderthals"?

They must have been neanderthals to vote for Weill.

1:09 - alright tuff guy who would you have voted for?

Anonymous said...

Give Weill credit where it is due. He was a staunch opponent to new taxes. Whitwell wants to increase the sales tax in Jackson by +14.3% while Allen was the tax lover who pushed for the 'temporary' increase in property taxes that became permanent the second the tax was passed. Weill also didn't dodge the duties of his office by faking a 'near-stroke'. Sho-nuff.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
