I'm sure all the lawyer geeks get this and it's probably related to the Ponzi scheme, but could someone elaborate?

Billings?

I am with a couple of the posters above - someone please provide some context for the Butler Snow reference here and in other posts related to the timber Ponzi. I saw a few posts that mention Billings - was he hawking the timber deal?

Billings is no longer with Butler Snow. Furthermore, Butler Snow Advisory is the business consulting arm of BS, not an investment advisory. They help businesses by providing executive expertise, acquisition advice, general consulting and assist owners in selling their businesses. I don't see how this part of BS would be connected to Adams' timber scheme.

I certainly wouldn't put it past some of the executive team with BS Advisory to have made personal investments in the scam - based on my dealings with them, they seem like perfect targets. Beyond that, I don't see the link.

What am I missing? Do tell...

Is "Lord Snow" an allusion to Jon Snow from Game of Thrones, since one of these guys is named Jon?

Best I can come up with, not being plugged into the Machiavellian soap opera that is the Jackson power law practices.

All the JJ readers that don't get the insider jokes- you aren't the intended audience!

The post was not meant for you.

See you beyond the valley.

I think the reference of Lord Snow, is none other than the Dark Lord himself, Valdimort. Many choose not to speak his name. I have heard him called the "Emperor of FEMA" and The King of Extortion.

I call him "humpty dumpty". Just waiting for the fall.

For the uninitiated, "Lord Snow" is commonly used on this site as a reference to the law firm Butler, Snow, O'Mara, Stevens and Cannada, now simply known as Butler Snow. And, yes, there is a veiled reference to Game of Thrones, of which Kingfish is a big fan.

However, whereas Jon Snow in GoT is the hero, Butler Snow in the eyes of many contributors to this site is villain. Butler Snow is a very powerful firm with many political connections. The more rabid conspiracy theorists might go so far as to insinuate that Butler Snow is some sort of shadow power behind the government in MS - Oz behind the curtain pulling the levers.

to 5;29pm... oz behind the curtain.........THATS A GREAT ANALOGY!!!!!!

Won’t be seeing her at Walkers again said...

Mike Billings is/was an employee at Butler Snow in a role advising clients on wealth management. He was also one of the four promoters of the Ponzi scheme. She has always made a living off social climbing, but appears the ladder has collapsed

Butler Snow DOES control state government. I have seen it.

It’s been a good week for the Congress and Amite Crowd.

Butler Snow also controls the Mayor of Ridgeland

Size 7m said...

I saw a pair of Black velvet Louis Vuitton slippers listed on eBay, I wonder if Billings is already liquidating

If the Mississippi Bar continues to allow both wealth management and lobbyists to run their businesses through law firms after this fiasco, then the legal profession will surely suffer more of these type scandals. Back in the day law schools taught ethics......

I am unmasking you 4:01 as one of the damage control people for Loe Snow. Your not seeing how all are connected is very telling.

Good to see that nepotism was thriving at BS at that time!

The Bar does nothing. I am an attorney who filed a complaint on a fellow attorney. Unbelievable corruption, destruction of evidence, etc. Should be wearing an orange jumpsuit. I furnished all the relevant court, bank and tax records, and cited them in my complaint. Bar did zip. Lame excuse about some of the events being over three years old, so they couldn’t act!?! They didn’t mention the events that had transpired within three years. There were several. Basically, they won’t do jack to anyone politically connected.

6:04 you are absolutely right. The Mississippi Bar are nothing but an illusion of oversight controlled by the elite law firms that invite them to their functions. It is unbelievable what our legal system has come to and the complete lack of ethical conduct allowed.

Anonymous said...

Robert Shular Smith has had more bar complaints filed (provable), and to be filed (probable), than any attorney in history. BAR = crickets. PATHETIC. Were he white he would be GONE.

HAHAHAHA 4:01 you Butler Snow people need to do a better job of blending in when you come here to comment. Be more obvious. You can't.

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? 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. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
