Green Recuses

All Hinds County Circuit Judges recused themselves from hearing State v. Greta Brown-Bully.  Senior Circuit Judge Tomie Green asked the Mississippi Supreme Court yesterday to appoint a Special Circuit Judge to try the case.  A grand jury indicted Bully for the murder of Larry "Caveman" Lee.

Why? What’s the connection to either party?

Tough break for Brown-Bully

While the Hinds County justice system often leaves a lot to be desired, kudos for the judges recusing. If you have to ask the connections, 10:33, you ain’t from around here: Constable Brown’s daughter and owner of a well-frequented eatery by many holding public office (and not just minority office holders).

Every now and then a broken clock . .

Damn, has common sense somehow showed it's ugly little head? Maybe we will see more of this with her. Should have done this in the past for other cases.

But she doesn't recuse for all the other non-famous thugs she knows that the public doesn't know she knows.

She doesn't recuse for the Famous Thugs, so why do so for this? We all are well aware that this case is probably going nowhere.

Uh oh... odds of getting a blessing just went way, way down...

No "motion to fix" will be proferred at this time.

Thank you, Judges. We all know it is the right thing to do, given the identity of the defendant.

Those of you who bash our Hinds County judges as a perfunctory kneejerk reaction to virtually every judicial decision handed down need a reality check. If you think particular judges are so awful/biased/whatever, then you need to look at each one's reversal rate on appeal. Many times our judges are constrained by statutory law which precludes them from taking actions or imposing harsher sentences than some of you wish for. If you have a gripe about "the law", then you need to contact your representatives to amend existing laws.

@5:22 - Spot-on assessment. I concur.

5:22, While you make a valid point about judges being constrained by the law, regardless of public opinion, I offer the following:

Hinds County Circuit Judges Wooten and Peterson haven't really been on the bench long enough to be reversed on appeal at this point. As for Tommie Green, the only case I've had in front of her had one of her buddies on the other side, and she was reversed on appeal. Also, I frequently come across opinions reversing Judge Green while doing research (and this is in the civil context, not criminal). I don't come across Judge Kidd's name very often, which I think is a good thing.

Apparently, my impression of Judge Green is borne out by her reversal rate, which was 36% over a two-year period from 2013-2015. 20% is considered a red flag. For more on Hinds County Circuit Judge reversal rates, see below:

greene has been reversed so many times she walks backwards.

The bar for being a judge in Hinds county is so low that we heap praise on them when they finally handle a situation properly.

KF, do you know who was appointed to replace Green?

Kingfish said...

Someone from Natchez. I will look when I can.

Either these judges don’t want to reside over a case where Bully will be found guilty or they don’t want to reside over a case where she’ll walk out of the courtroom a free woman, and be subjected to chants of favoritism from the media.

Either way, I understand.

" She doesn't recuse for the Famous Thugs, so why do so for this? "

Is this really a question ?

If so, 12:55 should just watch any Mafia movie and a few "Game of Thrones" episodes.

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. 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.
