The Clown Sanctioned Yet Again

Carlos the Clown is in trouble yet again but this time in his role as a Grenada Municipal Court Judge Pro-tem.  The Commission on Judicial Performance fined Mr. Moore $1,500 after he used his position as a judge to pressure officers for a private client. 

A shooting took place at Satan's Sidekick Clubhouse in Grenada.  The establishment is a motorcycle club. Mr. Moore represented a client involved in the shooting.  It is not known if the client was a victim or suspect.  Mr. Moore and his client met with a detective, MBI agent, and Grenada County District Attorney Investigator in his office on December 4, 2020.  A disagreement over a search warrant for phone records ensued and Mr. Moore kicked the boys in blue out of his office.  

"Judge" Moore held court on December 8.  He asked the Grenada Police Chief and a Detective at the meeting to appear in his courtroom to discuss the December 4 meeting.  When the two officers of the law entered his courtroom, "Judge" Moore stopped the proceedings and brought both officers before the bench.  The detective asked if they could discuss the matter in chambers but Carlos the Clown refused as he proceeded to berate the officers in open court about the case involving his client.  

Handling personal cases while on the bench is a big no-no.   The Commission stated: 

Municipal judges are authorized to practice law within limited parameters. However, Respondent's conduct in using his court to request the attendance of law enforcement involved in a case in his private practice, addressing the matter in open court, and publicly chastising and embarrassing the law enforcement officers in the presence of the entire courtroom violated the Code of Judicial Conduct as well as Section 177 A of the Mississippi Constitution of 1890, as amended.

17. Respondent has not contested that his actions amounted to judicial misconduct and were prejudicial to the administration of justice which brought the judicial office into disrepute.

Apparently, "Judge" Moore has had discussions with the Commission before: 

While the Respondent has no prior disciplinary history related to utilizing his courtroom for his private practice, In December, 2020, he entered into a Memorandum of Understanding regarding his inappropriate use of his office on social media.

Mr. Moore agreed to a $1,500 fine.  The Commission submitted the case to the Mississippi Supreme Court for review.  

The sanctions are piling up against Mr. Moore:

* The Mississippi Workers Comp Commission sanctioned him for $500 in 2017 for throwing a tantrum at a hearing. Earlier post. 

 * The Mississippi Court of Appeals ordered Carlos Moore to pay sanctions of $27,467 after he failed to appear in court for a trial because he had a "speaking engagement" in Texas. Earlier post. 

* Mississippi Bar reprimanded him in 2020 for ignoring an assignment of a Client's funds and providing the funds to the client. Earlier post. 

Federal judge in North Mississippi sanctioned Moore for $3,000 in 2017 for fabricating statements, memos, and not responding to discovery.

*  U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves sanctioned Moore $500 in the Belhaven case after he found Moore's client destroyed evidence in 2017.  Earlier post. 

*  The Tennessee Bar censured the Grenada attorney in 2019 after he placed a lien on a client because she rejected a settlement offer he recommended.  Earlier post.

* The estate of Kendrick Murry sued him (pro se) in September 2020 in Forrest County Circuit Court for alleged legal malpractice of a case.  Earlier post.  However, the lawsuit has not been prosecuted since the initial filing of the complaint.  Mr. Moore has not been served with the lawsuit. 

Then there is the recent case in Oxford.  The Clown got caught fabricating statements in a wrongful death lawsuit.

So, honestly, what does one have to do to lose their law license. Seems the sky's the limit on how unethical you can behave. ----Oh, I forgot, we're talking about lawyers. ---Never mind

You can't sanction the President of the National Bar Association!

They obviously don't know who they're dealing with.

$1,500? That's not even a slap on the wrist. There is apparently nothing he can do that will get him in any actual trouble.

It's an embarrassment. He should lose his license.

Has this guy paid any or all of the fines levied against him? My guess would be “no”.

Since we are a country of LAWS, our country is only as good as the ones who administrate the Law system. Looking pretty bad right now.

Rewarding bad behavior yields more bad behavior. (These minimal sanctions are a joke and essentially "rewards.")

bar won't do anything. I knew a young man "practicing" law with a fake license. He was busted by a judge and the bar did nothing.

Carlos' clients LOVE him for pulling stuff like this-
Stop and think about it.

Only if Carlos the clown were white!!! He certainly wouldn’t be allowed to practice law

Criminal Enterprise and Chaos. Fuck Teflon, ole Carlos is more slippery than BAM (boron, aluminum and magnesium). God bless his crooked ass, gotta love members of Organized Crime.

Obviously Atty. Moore, the champion of racial justice, is being hounded and persecuted by the racist Mississippi authorities who want to silence this powerful voice of the people. His fellow jurists in places like New York and California certainly know full well the difficulties a crusader like Mr. Moore must endure in a backwards hell like Mississippi. Onward brave freedom fighter! Someday he will reap his well deserved rewards. Bless his heart.

By the way, got a drink?

This is the way things have ALWAYS been done in Mississippi. Y’all racists just don’t like it when its are turn!

You mean white trollers like yourself 10:29?

I can’t imagine how a lawyer caught “fabricating evidence” retains his license. If this were anyone but Moore, he or she would have been disbarred, particularly given the numerous additional instances of misconduct. Fabricating evidence undermines the foundation on which any sense of justice is based.

His theoretical law partner is Tal Braddock, so what did you expect??

There is thick and stupid, and then there's Moore thick and stupid.

Is this one of Ole Mess Law's graduates?

Anonymous said...

Maybe they need for him to keep his license so that he can continue to provide the financial support to the disciplinary authorities’ budgets, assuming he actually pays the assessed penalties.

12:13. Moore received his JD from Florida State.

Sad to think that society used to want their children to become lawyers. Shame on the honorable lawyers for not purging their ranks of snakes like this one.

Short of murder I'm not sure what will get this man disbarred.

"Shame on the honorable lawyers" there are two words in that short quote that should never be used together. Guess which two.

Anonymous said...

2:44 You do understand that if he gets disbarred by the Mississippi Supreme Court or Miss. Bar that will make him a celebrity in other circles. He will probably be made a professor at Harvard. That's what you are dealing with.

Anonymous said...

10:52 The MS Bar used to frown on acts of "moral turpitude." Since SO many rules have been watered down over the years, I guess they just don't look at lying to the court as being any big deal any more. Well, at least not if you're "protected" like the Clown.

That'sMisterDeplorableToYou said...

A white lawyer would have been disbarred by now.

Anonymous said...

The Mississippi Bar is a joke. Party planners.

Only way to lose your law license is to screw up your trust account.

Judicial Performance used to be tough. This guy used the bench to pressure law enforcement in a case where the “judge” is involved as a private practice attorney.

He should be removed. Hard stop right there. Forget the fine - remove him from the bench and file the bar complaint. Take away his license.

Anonymous said...

3:52 Get outta here. There are plenty of white lawyers that they won't touch either. Get real.

Sanctioned by the Northern District, Southern District, Mississippi Bar, Tennessee Bar, Judicial Performance, Worker's Comp. Commission, circuit court, all within the last 5 years.

This guy's on quite a roll.

Declining standards in society are a serious part of all the problems that this nation is facing.

It’s getting to the point where I feel like the Blatantly Racist Clown is allowed to get away with his dumbassery simply because he his a black man. If it were me, I’d have been disbarred or squeezed out a long time ago. Why in the hell does he get a pass?

"bar won't do anything. I knew a young man "practicing" law with a fake license. He was busted by a judge and the bar did nothing."

Not to defend the bar here, but what's the bar going to do? They can't disbar a guy who doesn't have a license. The guy practicing with a fake license should've been prosecuted. That's something that a DA should do, not the bar.

Anonymous said...

10:45 You obviously have no way of bringing pressure to bear. Some lawyers white and black do. White and Black. Black lawyers have been suspended and even disbarred so look elsewhere for your answer. Can you do that?

He is doing the very same things white lawyers have been doing in Mississippi since 1798.

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.
