Federal Home Cooking in Lamar Adams case?

U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves finally appointed a receiver to handle the Lamar Adams assets in S.E.C. v. Lamar Adams et al.  The winner is.....

New Orleans attorney Alysson Mills.

The daughter of U.S. Northern Division of the Mississippi District Judge Mike Mills.  She has been barred since 2008 in Mississippi and 2010 in Louisiana.

Kingfish note: To the out-of-state victims, hot damn, welcome to Mississippi.  For a Judge soooooo focused on "diversity", the choice is rather odd.  Ms. Mills is a white female in a law firm packed with one black female and thirty-five honkeys. Diversity indeed.

A search of bankruptcy cases in PACER shows that Ms. Mills is listed as an attorney on exactly two bankruptcy cases although her law firm does have extensive experience in this area.

She’s pretty. Does that still count?

Blood is thicker than water. That's on old Southern proverb.

Plenty of Mississippi attorneys/firms that could handle this. Good lawyers not tainted by Lamar Adams and the rest of the clowns.

So can she really be trusted to guard and protect Mike Billings' black Louis Vuitton slippers?

According to her firm's website, she was a summa cum laude graduate of Ole Miss Law School and was voted the top young lawyer in the State of Lousiana. I seriously doubt anyone who will participate in this thread can match those credentials. But by all means let the negativity and carping continue.

"35 honkies"

LMAO !!!!!!!!!

Last Anonymous: Ms. Mills obviously has skills and abilities, but to suggest that many of the other applicants weren't as or more qualified is silliness. There were any number of people qualified to handle this. I'm not sure how Ms. Mills' proposal meets the qualifications the judge set forth in his previous order, but she has been appointed. Just don't kid anybody that her application stood head and shoulders above the rest.

Unknown: I don't know who the other applicants were, but Judge Reeves' order said many of them conflicted out because they had too many connections with the rich and powerful involved in this case. If you have any information to the contrary, then you can provide it, but that certainly seems plausible to me with what we know about the involvement of big Jackson law firms in this scheme. So it wasn't that the applicants (and I expect only so many applied) were unqualified, but that they conflicted out.

My decision to do my own checking of her firm's bio was also motivated by my awareness of this board's nature, which is to constantly look for the controversial and corrupt angle to any story, and to overlook facts which run afoul of that narrative.

I think a balanced report of Ms. Mills would have included her being at the top of her law school class and being voted the top lawyer in her state. I could have also mentioned the fact that she was a Fifth Circuit law clerk and teaches at Tulane Law School and at the Ole Miss Barksdale honors college.

But that doesn't fit the theme of this board, so of course it wasn't mentioned. I just figured I would complete the report, and I do appreciate Kingfish allowing it to be posted.

Following the blood trail of a high school educated scam artist that duped a lot of supposedly smart people should be a piece of cake for a paralegal, much less this lady.

Who cares? After all litigation, hourly billings, expenses for motel bookings for someone from Louisiana, food expenses (unless the Country Club of Jackson (CCJ) comps these) and expenses for "relaxing after hard days at work in the Onyx Room at the CCJ", how much will be recoverable? My prediction is this litigation will continue until all "recoverable moneys" are depleted. If I had been duped in this scam, my main worry would not be the principal I lost, but the "Claw Back" I will be ordered to repay. BTW, How many people have you known who shared virtually every night promoting this scam in the fore mentioned "ONYX ROOM"

"honkie" sounds a bit racist to me. It seems that displeasure with a decision can be appropriately expressed without relying on racist terms to describe caucasian attorneys.

to kingfish .... thank you for reviving the term honkie. it was very popular in the 70s.

Anonymous said...

I read her credentials. I am confident she can bluebook.

I cant remember which term Im supposed to be offended by, “honkie” or “cracker”. Either way, it requires a non white person to call me that in order for offense to be taken.

here’s why many Jackson Jambalaya commenters won’t like her:

1: she went to Ole Miss (part of “the plantation”)
2: she was in a sorority at Ole Miss (even a bigger part of “the plantation”)
3: she is under 40
4: her dad is a federal judge
5: she is a big ole liberal
6: she doesn’t add anything to the debate about how great the Northpointe pool was in the early 90s

Anonymous said...

If she is anything like her father, then her integrity is without question.

BTW her father was a member of the Legislature in the early 1990’s and this was in Jackson a lot then, so he might be able to add something to the Northpointe pool discussion....

Sarcasm Sam said...

6:56AM - If she didn't pee in the Northpointe pool she should be disqualified, unless of course she has bought fuel at a Costco gas station.

However, the real question should be ... is she certified?

She looks like Sela Ward. Not much diversity there.

Those perpetually disgruntled with JJ still read every day. Thanks for helping to pay the bills!

Katie Bryant Snell was too busy... I guess

Obviously well qualified, even if she doesn't meet KF's opinion of qualification. Sorry Fish, the Judge (surprisingly) made a good pick - independent of the various interests that are or may be involved in this case. The fact that she is not black is hardly a reason to bitch, but that seems to be one of your major reasons to question the Judge's choice. Yes, Reeves issued an unusual order stating that he was looking to make sure that the "usual lot" (i.e. those recommended by our wonderful Sec of State, the lawyers that he has raised lots of money from for his 2019 LG race) didn't limit the opportunities of others. So, after reviewing the resumes and submitted proposals, he picked a white person. Am, we are complaining?? Please KF, explain why we should be upset because he didn't practice the racism you were expecting.

As noted earlier, if she has only half the integrity or objectivity of her father, we should be applauding this selection. You can keep on looking for shadows behind the blades of grass, but I'm going to be thankful that Judge Reeves has chosen well.

Anonymous said...

She represented Starkville Pride in the lawsuit against the City for their gay parade. Apparently by "diversity," Reeves just meant sufficiently lib. This is shameful considering how many well-qualified attorneys are in Mississippi could have handled this work.

There is already a lack of work for all the attorneys in the state, and out-of-state firms try to muscle their way in to the best matters. Now we have a judge affirmatively hiring those out-of-state attorneys. The Mississippi Bar is doomed.

Plenty of work in MS for quality attorneys.

What is it about the conflicts of interests for the MS law firms who would have lawyers with these credentials that y'all don't understand?

Anonymous said...

There are plenty, plenty of MS law firms with the credentials that don't have conflicts.

Anonymous said...

Conflicts of interest = Red Herring

Reeves = Misdirection from outset

She must be married to someone in the "New Majority".

Anonymous said...

Her firm, which only has one minority lawyer out of 36 attorneys, is handling this. She is not the lead attorney on it either. So, Reeves picked a lily-white law firm that is not even from Mississippi to handle this. Unbelievable, considering what he previously wrote.

Think there are others,other than Adams,involved in this mess. Be interesting to see if these players are revealed?

Anonymous said...

Also wondering about the "other players". Any news on those recruiters that got $4 mil to bring investors to Adam's?

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.
