Supremes Hurry Adjudication of 1020 Lawsuit

 The Mississippi Supreme Court agreed to expedite consideration of the appeal of the dismissal of the HB #1020 lawsuit in Hinds County Chancery Court.  

Jackson residents Dorothy Triplett, Ann Saunders, and Sabreen Sharrief asked Hinds County Chancellor Dewayne Thomas to block the appointment of four temporary circuit judges and creation of the CCID court under HB #1029.  Judge Thomas denied their request.  

The plaintiffs appealed to the Mississippi Supreme Court and asked the Court to expedite adjudication of their lawsuit.   The Court decreed May 25: 

The instant matter is before the undersigned Justice on the Emergency Motion for Expedited Consideration filed by Ann Saunders, Sabreen Sharrief, and Dorothy Triplett. After due consideration, the undersigned Justice finds that the motion should be granted. The appellants’ brief shall be filed on or before May 31, 2023. The appellees’ briefs shall be filed on or before June 14, 2023. Any reply brief shall be filed on or before June 19, 2023. No extensions will be granted absent extraordinary circumstances.

IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that the Emergency Motion for Expedited Consideration filed by the appellants is granted as set forth above.

It is further ORDERED that oral argument will be held before the en banc court on July 6, 2023, at 10:30 a.m.

It is further ORDERED that the Mississippi Supreme Court will retain the case.

Stay Tuned.

Someone dropped a dime to hurry them along.

I cannot decide if this is sad, funny, or both. What I don't need to decide is if this is just another load of bullshit involving Jackson, MS. We aren't last in innumerable things because of racism, we're last in most or all of those things because of stupidity. And stupidity has nothing whatsoever to do with skin color, as Mississippi pols of every skin tone prove every day and in every way.

This lawsuit will fail. Judges have been appointed in the past and it was not deemed a violation of the constitution as long as it was temporary. In the past, the length of time was a year - this time it's three but it's STILL temporary.

constitutional by a 7-2 vote.

Who gets the case? My prediction is 6-3 constitutional.

King was a racist lawyer in Greenville 40 years ago. His vote is not in doubt. Of course he votes only after 'careful consideration of the facts at hand'.

It has been done before in this state. Why would it be illegal now ?

10:13, your labeling King as a racist lawyer in Greenville 40 years ago is misplaced. He is actually one of the most thoughtful and open-minded judges on the bench. I don’t always agree with his votes, but he is not a Hinds County circuit judge type by any stretch. Pretty sure Barbour wouldn’t have appointed him unless he was actually moderate. Lol.

Dorothy is a nice lady with a son that served in the military. However, she has been a democrat militant since the 60s. She has the same mental bandwidth as Dianne Fienstein. Sit down Dorothy. The cops are coming for the great grandkids that were failed by your soft approach to education (give us more money) and the free the criminals policies that you support. Your apologist BS has made Jackson lose population, increased crime recidivism, and blocked the state takeover of JPS. Congratulations on your 60 year crusade to graduate illiterate criminals.

The Court is 6-3, conservative-liberal.

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.
