Byrd evicted after refusing to move out.

Hinds County Court Judge Larita Cooper-Stokes ordered the eviction of attorney Isaac Byrd from his home on 14 E. Hill Drive in Jackson in April.    Bank of America filed suit against Mr. Byrd in July 2014. The bank foreclosed on the home on January 7, 2014 at a sale on the courthouse steps.  Hinds County deputies and several moving vans appeared at the home on June 30.



Bank of America claimed that Mr. Byrd refused to move from the home. It sent him several notices and finally went to court against Mr. Byrd.   Judge Stokes ruled against him on April 7, 2015.  She ordered him to vacate the premises by June 8.  However, Mr. Byrd apparently did not move out of the home on that date.  Bank of America presented the order to the Sheriff's office.

What happened to his tobacco money?

That is sad to see, he settled some huge cases over the years and gave away millions to various schools and charities.

It appears he got to live rent-free in a home worth close to a million dollars for nearly two years if one assumes he had not paid a note for five months when the foreclosure sale took place.

Well, I guess he learned "that if you don't pay, you don't stay".

Typical arrogance.

Meanwhile: In Florida and other places, vagrants are allowed by the courts to set up homestead in vacant homes that are on the market.

Ironically, you can see Wholefoods from his kitchen window

He has been extremely ill and partially paralyzed in recent years due to a massive stroke. He is still in a wheelchair and just started making public appearances again in about the last year or so.

@ 2:46 AM ..how do you know what the view is from this dead beat's kitchen window ?

Well, that house may have been worth a cool million bucks when Buster Bailey sold it to him Kingfish but from my experience in such matters when the situations reaches this point the house it usually totally trashed and may not be salvageable without HUGE expenditures.....good luck!

Um, @ 12:11 PM.. "just started making public appearances again" .. Really? Appearances where, in the defendants chair in justice court? Byrd is not some rock star or celebrity, he is just another dead beat individual that doesn't pay his bills. Public appearances my foot... geez...

Tens of millions have lost their homes since 2008 and tens of millions more still have underwater mortgages. Some have been deadbeats but most were not, some faced economic loss, some had serious health problems like Mr. Byrd and so on.

Kingfish said...

And they got out of their homes when they had to and didn't try to scam the system for nearly two years.

@12:44, um, yes. "Public appearances" is a relative term, depending on location, profession, etc. No, Mr. Byrd is not a rockstar, but he has been asked to speak at galas, business functions, and churches for years, in Mississippi and beyond. He had stopped in recent years due to his health.

Just because you are not in his social circle does not mean it isn't happening. You either get it or you don't dear...

And didn't file tax returns for years but got a pass. I was involved with some cases with him and he's no rocket scientist. It wasn't charitable contributions but terrible investments that got him-- like Primos Northgate.

Anonymous said...

um, @ 1:44 PM...maybe he was the toast of the town after he was included in the tobacco lawsuit by Mike Moore at the DEMAND of the US Justice Department and had lot's of $$$, now he ain't nothing but a broke bloke trying to scam the system, not pay his taxes and creating a situation where the sheriff has to physically THROW him the curb. (More tax dollars being wasted dealing with yet one more slacker) AND, don't call be dear!

When a person has had a stroke, it's time to stop being judgemental. His mental capacities may be seriously diminished. Caregivers may be making the decisions. Or maybe, NOBODY is making decisions.

But that's interesting, 3:44. Are you saying that he was included in the Tobacco lawsuit, to satisfy a Justice Department demand for minority participation?

Anonymous said...

@ 7:17 PM....First, please drop the "he dun had a stroke and can't be held responsible for anything" mantra. Byrd owns the blow back from the sh*#storm he has caused. It is astonishing to me that a rather large segment of our society think that they are responsible for nothing they do and become clownishly indignant when confronted with the dreaded "R" word. Secondly, that is exactly what I am saying about cramming him into the tobacco settlement for no other reason than minority participation. You must be the one that gazes out of his (formerly his that is) kitchen window at Whole Foods remembering what used to be.

I don't know anything about this particular case, but, I want to say how happy that I am with Judge Stoke's Courtroom demeanor when it comes to Unlawful Entry and Detainer suits to get someone out of a home when they are refusing to move. I am in her Court often and it is good to not have to deal with a Judge who will, without reason, give people two months more of free rent before they are required to move.

Purpul Hurl Peas said...

Didn't the 'tobacco lawsuit' thing happen during Junior Bush's watch? I'm not thinking Bush's Justice Department required minority set asides. Those were most popular with Clinton, and later, the current POS. Mike Moore pushed the 'work' to democrats. It's as simple as that.

Anonymous said...

Appropos considering Whole Foods' recent admission of gouging. The shine is off the penny.

Anonymous said...

6:31am....the lawsuit was during the Clinton and Muscrat reigns.

Purple Hurl Peas said...

However; 9:20, it was your boy Mike Moore who selected the recipients of the associated largess. Nobody mandated involvement by particular racial groups. And it was prosecuted during the Bush reign.

Unknown said...

Derogatory statement about someone you barely know is just uncalled for. I dont wish anything bad on anyone, but to those making such statements I hope you are well prepared if such health problems strike you out of the blue. Racist people always make excuses for their way of thinking.

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.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease.
