Governor Appoints Rankin County Court Judge

 Governor Tate Reeves issued the following statement. 

Governor Tate Reeves today announced the appointment of David Morrow as County Court Judge for Rankin County, Post 1. Morrow will replace Judge Kent McDaniel, who recently announced his retirement effective September 30, 2021. 

"David’s extensive legal experience and dedication to public service make him well-qualified to work on behalf of Rankin County residents,” said Governor Tate Reeves. “I am grateful that he accepted this appointment and confident he will hit the ground running.”

Morrow’s lengthy legal career began in 1998 when he became the sole practitioner of the Morrow Law Firm, which focuses on real estate, domestic, probate, trusts, and wills almost exclusively in Rankin County. Since 2016, Morrow has served as a Rankin County Chancery Court’s Family Master where he has been the presiding judge over numerous trials, hearings, and motions, all within Rankin County. Morrow previously served as the Board Attorney for the Rankin County Board of Supervisors from January 2002 until December 2007. He graduated from the United States Air Force with a Bachelor of Science and earned his Juris Doctorate from the Mississippi College School of Law.

David is a good guy, long time resident of Rankin County, knows the system, has served as a Family Master for many years, and is very well liked. He has huge shoes to fill but is a solid choice and will do well.

I'm sure he is a great guy and a good choice,
but what exactly is a "Family Master"?

Lost respect for him when represented someone in a frivolous suit against my company.

8:56, all those bottom feeding lawyers that produce nothing of value to society have to eat somehow.

8:56: Who won?

That’s right, 9:09, get rid or lawyers. Then get rid of the courts, so no one can challenge your efforts to get rid of the vote. Then your Supreme Leader can take over and we’ll all live in utopia, as our founding fathers intended.

Instead of violating Godwin's Law, 10:56 leaps immediately to "the end of democracy" at an insult to not all lawyers, but our marginally employed ones in a state where the majority of MCL grads can't even find a job chasing ambulances.

Good grief. Stop the pearl clutching.

This is why your senile POTUS is already rated at 31%, even lower than the non lawyer before him, ever. Irrational fear and manufactured outrage, instead of doing the job for the people, not just the K Street crowd and Xi.

I guess GrandMa Selfie Day lives on in your imagination as "the darkest day in American History" which ain't selling anymore. But, seriously, don't you have someone without a mask to report?

8:56. UH! That’s what lawyers do represent clients.

Kent McDaniel was a model judge, and remains a model human being. May he live long and prosper.

At least they are getting rid of McDaniel. He should have never been allowed in a court room.

Judge McDaniel, or as the convicted know him- Concierge of the Rankin County Jail, had an important role in ridding society of vagrants and miscreants in our midst. From the bench, he sent a message of “not here , not now nor anytime soon!” I applaud his service and am grateful for his role in keeping our communities safe. If there were more judges like him we would not be experiencing some of the issues like you see elsewhere. Enjoy retirement.

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.
