I have total returns for all counties (from the Daily Journal), and county returns for Chickasaw County (from the Chickasaw Daily Journal) and Lafayette County (obtained by me from the Circuit Clerk). I do not have returns for Marshall, although I have been reliably informed that Kelly Luther carried that county, Benton, Calhoun, Tippah, [...]
Update: VOTE TODAY, TUESDAY NOVEMBER 25th!
Folks in the following counties have an important judicial election tomorrow: Lafayette, Benton, Calhoun, Chickasaw, Marshall, Tippah, Union. The candidates on the ballot are Kelly Luther and Shirley Byers. I have previously posted about Shirley Byers’s prior experience as a judge.

That memorial lawsuit by the Sons of Confederate Veterans seems to have gone nowhere. They got issued a summons for a Rule 81 hearing (what were they seeking, a divorce?) for a hearing that was never actually scheduled, and a lawyer appeared for the University, and then… nothing. Not even a return on the [...]
There’s a runoff in the Circuit Court race in the Third Circuit Court district. That encompasses Tippah (Ripley), Benton (Ashland), Marshall (Holly Springs), Lafayette (Oxford), Union (New Albany), Calhoun (Pittsboro) and Chickasaw (Houston / Okolona) Counties.
The run-off is between Shirley Byers and Kelly Luther. Luther’s credentials are ones [...]
Bobby Harrison has an article in the Daily Journal about the Third Circuit run-off that focuses on Shirley Byers having been reprimanded by the Mississippi Supreme Court for wrongfully jailing a reporter. The article doesn’t fully spell it out; she was reprimanded for a number of violations of the canons of judicial ethics in that [...]

One name that cropped up: Steve Hayne. Yes, the same Steve Hayne who for years was the go-to pathologist for law enforcement seeking… uh… creative [...]

Here it is. Thanks to John Pittman Hey for linking it.
One of the more repulsive aspects of representing folks who are held in state jails is dealing with the private telephone services that contract with those jails. Family, lawyers, and anyone trying to communicate with inmates find themselves dealing with companies that just seem to be running a scam– rates several orders of magnitude [...]
While you await my discussion of the McDaniel election contest opinion, I will direct your attention to Anderson’s quotation and discussion of the Tea Party response. The response contains the sentence quoted in the title of this post. While I cannot explain its meaning, I make some notes about the recurrence of warnings about [...]
