Carlos Moore sanctioned again.

Carlos the Clown was sanctioned yet again.  A Leflore County Judge sanctioned attorney Carlos Moore for $27,467 after he failed to appear in court for a trial because he had a "speaking engagement" in Texas.

Mr. Moore sued a doctor and medical clinic in Leflore County Circuit Court on behalf of Lue Sanders in 2014.  The attorney associated the law firm of Brown, Bass, & Jeter, PLLC on the lawsuit even though the Plaintiff never agreed to this association.  The court set the trial to begin on September 5, 2017.  It scheduled the trial on November 30, 2016.

Brown, Bass, & Jeter filed a motion to withdraw from the case on August 18, 2017.  The court approved the withdrawal ten days later without objection from anyone.  Then the fun started for Carlos the Clown.

Mr. Moore filed a motion to withdraw, motion to continue, and a motion to assert lien on Friday, September 1, 2017.  That date was one business day before the start of the scheduled trial.  The Grenada attorney claimed "he had a scheduling conflict and would be out of state on September 5, 2017."  However, the order states that Mr. Moore "never stated the nature of his conflict."  The defense would have none of a delay and "presented evidence that Attorney Moore had a speaking engagement in Texas on that day."

However, Mr. Moore was not through with making excuses to the court.  He said that he had "a previous obligation for a trial commencing on September 12, 2017 in Shelby, County, Tennessee."  However, the court found that the scheduling order for that trial was entered seven months after the scheduling order for the present case.

September 5, 2017 rolled around at the Leflore County Courthouse and everyone was present but Carlos Moore.  Even the plaintiff was in court that day.  Mr. Moore sent another lawyer to argue for a continuance.  The court "reluctantly" granted the continuance but "asked the defendant to submit a cost bill for his attendance and his witnesses for their unnecessary trial preparation.

The defense said attorney's fees were $13,747 and expert witness fees were $13,720.  The court ordered Mr. Moore to reimburse the defendant for the fees within thirty days.

Carlos the Clown filed a motion for reconsideration.  He argued that the defendant had not actually paid the fees and that specific proof of such payment was required.  He also claimed that that he was denied a chance to argue his side to the court before the sanctions were imposed.  However, Mr. Moore threw a bone to the court and offered to pay reasonable expenses "that were actually needlessly incurred, if any.  The court denied the motion.

Mr. Moore appealed the sanctions to the Mississippi Supreme Court in January.

Kingfish note: $500 sanction in Belhaven case, $3,000 sanction in Tupelo case, Sanctions in Montgomery County that were settled out of court.  The fines and fees are starting to add up for Mr. Moore. 

Note: Order is on page 12 in the documents posted below.

Why don't they just disbar this clown? Maybe that will keep him out of the much beloved spotlight.

Carlos is an absolute idiot. There is no way he shouldn't be disbarred. Any law firm that associates with him will lose whatever credibility they have. Its gone from bad to worse after the Belhaven lawsuit. I wouldn't let him represent my dog.

He probably would have gotten away with it if it had been any other judge in the Delta.

Way to go Donner!!! Hitched your journowagon and the already meager reputation of your free entertainment weekly to a real winner.

When are you going to report Ladd with an update on Wayne Parish? You salivated profusely (2017 Most Intriguing) in advance of the jury trial you were sure was going to produce results for your hate agenda. Now, NOTHING.

And yet Clarksdale made him City Judge.

A non-attorney here. Is there some sort of rule that after x number of sanctions an attorney is disbarred? Carlos is a worthless parasite and should not be allowed to practice law any longer in this state.

I laughed when I read he "sent another attorney." He once "sent another attorney" to a 30(b)(6) corporate representative deposition. The poor kid had not even the slightest clue what to do. He asked some general background questions, and concluded the deposition in about 10 minutes, after barely establishing that the deponent was an appropriate representative. There was a 7 page deposition transcript. Simply laughable. My client and I just kinda smirked at one another. For what it's worth, settled the case for basically a cost of defense basis, for less than the alleged medicals. Client and Carlos walked away with basically nothing.

11:15....Carlos aside, if you settled a case for less than the defendant's medical expenses, you should be disbarred. Yet you're proud of it?

Ole Carlos is still hangin' in there. As long as he's not disbarred sooner or later his ship is gonna come in. It does not matter what judges think of him, and it does not matter what other lawyers think of him... as long as he can keep his name on the lips of the vast majority of uniformed people out there who don't know a supreme court justice from a justice court judge he's got a shot. Law is mostly a hustle anyway.

11:15 is a slightly smarter, whiter version of Carlos. Dresses better, drives a nicer vehicle, but does just as much damage to the legal profession as Carlos without being as entertaining.

Somebody contact George Soros. I think Mississippi has another Donkeycrat he can own, er, support.

12:27, who is presumably 12:38 too......If the case was settled for less than the plaintiff's medical expenses, that means one of two things. Either the case was a weak one with little proof the defendant was even liable to begin with (which is true in many, many of Carlos' cases) and in which there was a very good chance the jury would not find the defendant at fault. Or the plaintiff bore some of the fault and liability for the claim. Your criticism of 11:15 is woefully uninformed. Before you make any future posts, you may want to consider the old adage "Speak not of what you don't know".

Jeesh, Moore cited to "F.R.A.P." in his interlocutory appeal (Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure" instead of "M.R.A.P." (the Mississippi Rules of Appellate Procedure).

Attn 12:59 I doubt if Moore knows the difference between F.R.A.P. and M.R.A.P., I know I don't.

Once upon a time the legal profession was known for it's strict adherence to ethical standards. Lawyers could actually embarrass themselves. Not any more. P.T. Barnum would be embarrassed in the company of most lawyers. Carlos is just the poster child for this crap. His ethics (or lack thereof) prevail. That's why he's not disbarred!

12:27, let me add to the rebuke appropriately given by 12:58 - it was said "alleged medicals", not "medicals". I am sure it was just a convenient drop of the adjective on your part, but in any case that could be a significant difference. In Carlos's case, I am sure it would almost always be a major difference.

Ummmm, 12:27, the DEFENDANT wouldn't be the one with the medical bills........that would, um, be the PLAINTIFF. But thanks for playing, anyway!

12:27 said...

4:30 - Ummm; I'm aware of that and my point remains the same. Any attorney who participates in such a charade on either side of the swinging gate should be disbarred. If a defense attorney engages in slight of hand that denies a plaintiff his right to recover medical damages....he's an asshole.

I'm 12:27 but not 12:38 and thanks for having your head up your ass.

7:31, how are you able to comment from Pluto? That is some great internet service.

Here in the USA, on the planet Earth, we have an "adversarial" system of justice. There are other systems, but this one is ours.

No defense lawyer EVER has an obligation to make sure that a plaintiff recovers. It's the plaintiff's job to prove his case. If the plaintiff has a lousy lawyer, that is not the defense's fault.

If a plaintiff settles for less than the alleged medicals, that typically means what's been said upthread: the plaintiff had either a lousy case, or a lousy lawyer, or both.

(And, although our system wears blinders in this regard, any "medicals" often turn out to have been paid by insurance, and if they're substantial, the insurer often seeks to recover them from the judgment. So you're probably crying either for Medicare, Medicaid, or Blue Cross.)

In reference to the comment above, even in situations when they’ve been confronted with conduct warranting sanctions from opposing counsel, I would wager most lawyers would be extremely reluctant to file a Bar complaint. It brings to mind the old adage warning against wrestling with a pig ... you get covered in mud and the pig likes it. Likewise, while a court can take the initiative, I would bet that a judge that imposed sanctions would be inclined to think that was enough. That leaves the Mississippi Bar. All of these sanctions have been reported and are public record, so you would think the Bar would be aware of it. It is possible, I suppose, that the Bar is waiting for these appeals by Mr. Moore to run their course before getting involved.

8:52....spin that bullshit with your two buddies at Shuckers. The point made was that if EITHER attorney screws somebody out of medicals or celebrates on facebook that fact, he/she is a punk-ass attorney. It's sort of like celebrating the kicking of a dog or pissing on a man's wooden leg, then running off laughing. Get it?

Anonymous said...

5:04, he didn't say anything about screwing somebody out of medicals. He said he didn't pay "alleged medicals". Knowing Attorney Carlos, what he claims were medicals might have been visits to the Toys R Us across the street from the Doc's office - having nothing to do with the actual case.

Not paying 'alleged medicals' is what I damn sure would want my attorney to fight - you keep on working to keep the man's wooden leg dry. I'll keep on fighting to get scumbag attorneys like Moore out of the courtroom, and the profession.

Carlos has done it again....This time his lies and lack of performance has caused another client to face the possibility of having the case to be dismissed.He needs to not be able to practice anywhere due to his unethical practices and it’s obvious that he has no heart for his clients
He is all about himself....

Carlos client was fired on FMLA. And he tries to settle a case without any monetary value after not meeting the discovery deadlines

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.
