Tyrone Lewis Wins Defamation Lawsuit

Former Hinds County Sheriff Tyrone Lewis won a defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife, Tony Davis, and several other defendants in Hinds County Chancery Court yesterday. Hinds County Sheriff Tyrone Lewis sued in June 2015 for an injunction as well as damages against the defendants. Sheriff Lewis claimed they acted together to slander and defame him through social media over several months in 2015 prior to the August primary.  Attorney Dennis Sweet IV posted this message on Facebook yesterday:

The jury awarded $50,000 in  actual damages and $5,000 in punitive damages to Mr. Lewis.   However, Tony Davis issued the following statement last night and made it clear he will continue the fight:

The Special Judge rule against all the defendants and Tyrone Lewis prevail in this hearing. I am filing a motion for reconsideration of this Ruling and we will be appealing this decision if and when the Supreme Court review this case I feel I will be vindicated.

There are many issues that was very questionable and one of the Defendants was never served subpoena and the Plaintiff Attorney stated Tyrone Lewis former wife could not be found although she works in Jackson and is on Facebook. The judge rule without any documentation that the post I made on Face Book cause Tyrone Lewis had a undocumented Poll saying he would have won the election because Aaron Bank alleged the pole showed he was favored by 56 percent poll being done in 2014 and he was employed by Tyrone Lewis when he was elected as Sheriff.

Now as I stated that this case is not over and I guess that anyone by the ruling of this judge you have a imaginary lead from a poll done by you friend with no documentation then whoever comes up with a poll saying that they were leading in the poll would have been elected so people you need to come up with a Poll saying you lead then you are automatically elect.

I stand by what I have posted and we will pursue our case through the Courts.

I hope that the Judge will remember that Dennis Sweet last name was not Owens maybe the Judge got confused who was the Attorney on this Case.

I do resent the fact that this Judge accused me of using racial overtone by stating that I state on my post that stated the White votes and Black votes are a issue in political races.

I would appreciate if everyone would give us the opportunity to clear our name through my appeal until the Supreme Court can make there ruling on this case. Thank you !!!! This is just the beginning of this case from February 2015.

I am not the type of person that will hide issues that are not in my favor but to let the people know that even if you think I would be embarrassed by this ruling that I would not bring this out through Social media outlets because if I am wrong then let someone outside of this Hinds County Judicial System decide my innocent or guilt. I am not going to hide anything from anyone because I stand my own ground and you can make your own decision, I am exercise my Right to Freedom of Speech anyone can go get a copy of the court Transcript of this case and made you own decision who is right or who is wrong!
All Hinds County Chancellors recused themselves from the case.  Special Chancellor James Bell blistered, excoriated, and crucified the defendants in the opinion posted below.

The order, TRO, and complaint are posted below.

"...and punitive damages to detour others from doing the same!"

Taking a detour, eh?

Remedial English classes might be a good idea for the authors!

Punitive damages are always a joke. They are either ridiculously high to the point of being meaningless or they are ridiculously low to the point of being meaningless. Tony Davis' reaction illustrates the point.

I don't know who this guy is, but I reading his "response", his grammar and diction is that of a second grader.

Punitive damages are never 'meaningless'. Wait til Tyromes finds out he has to pay taxes on them.

The “joke” is that this goes on everyday in Mississippi. You have “has beens” and “want to be” people that bad mouth our judges and other officials and nothing is done. These same has beens are nothing but Deadbeat bums that deflect to others. Same as this site. I can assure that JJ knows of whom I’m speaking of and no story will ever be written about the disgraceful lies that our judges have suffered at hands of a Deadbeats FB page. And even if this comment isn’t deleted, which it will be, nothing will be done. We have public “officials” running in counties they don’t even live in, publicly trashing judges when they don’t get their way, and all of this is repeated. And what’s done? Nothing.
I didn’t support Tyrone but good for him for getting some payback.

Saying that he was a better Sheriff than the current one is true, however most anyone would be better. Victor has disappointed many people who truly believed in him. Having known him for over 20 years I look back now and see things that show the low quality individual that he has always been.

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.
