I’m assembling useful court information with a goal to having a couple of Mississippi practice pages. Here’s a list of Chancery Court district sites with information about the court’s calendars, dockets, scheduling, local rules and practices and the like. A list of Circuit Court district sites is here.
I am trying to put together a page of chancery court district webpages.
Please let me know in comments or by email any I have missed; I will post the full list when I have them. I am also interested in ones like those posted here for individual judges.
Here’s the ones I know about. Pretty much all allow access to the chancellor’s calendars to varying degrees, most have local rules and form orders. The most remarkable collection of forms is on the 2nd Chancery District page, which includes forms for clients to fill out to bring to their lawyer when they are, for instance, opening an estate case. These pages are very useful in conveying information about how particular chancellors expect things to be done.
I have also added in the Q&A’s various judges have done for the Better Chancery Practice blog, explained below.
1st Chancery District (Itawamba, Lee, Prentiss, Tishomingo, Alcorn, Union, Pontotoc, and Monroe Counties)
(Judge Littlejohn of the 1st has his own 1st Chancery District page)
2nd Chancery District Scott, Newton, and Jasper Counties. Judge Clark, the sole judge from that district, did a useful Q&A about practice before him that is found on the Better Chancery Practice blog, about which more below.
5th Chancery District Hinds County
There is not a 6th Chancery District page, but Judge Fenwick of that district did a Q&A about practice before him that is found on the Better Chancery Practice Blog.
7th Chancery District Tunica, Coahoma, Quitman, Tallahatchie, Leflore, and Bolivar Counties
There is not an 8th Chancery district page. Here is Judge Bise’s Q&A on the Better Chancery Practice blog.
10th Chancery District Marion, Lamar, Forrest, Perry, and Pearl River Counties. Judge Deborah Gambrell of that district did a Q&A about practice before her on the Better Chancery Practice blog. Judge Gene Fair also did a Q&A about practice before him on the Better Chancery Practice Blog.
11th Chancery District Holmes, Leake, Madison, and Yazoo Counties. Here’s Judge Cynthia Brewer’s Q&A about practice before her on the Better Chancery Practice Blog.
12th Chancery District’s Judge Primeaux has a page containing useful information about scheduling and other things anyone appearing before him would want to know, all as a part of his wonderful Better Chancery Practice Blog, which is an ongoing seminar in advanced chancery practice, among other things.
Judge Vincent Davis of the 17th Chancery District ( ) has a page with motion days in his counties, but none of the other information provided in other sites.
Judge Ed Roberts was, until very recently, one of the judges in the 18th Chancery District. Judge Bob Whitwell has taken his seat. I would expect some continuity in the practice in this district. Here’s a Q&A from Judge Roberts on the Better Chancery Practice blog with Judge Roberts.
Judge Frank McKenzie is one of the judges in the 19th Chancery District. Here’s his Q&A on the Better Chancery Practice Blog.
Judge John Grant is one of the judges in the 20th Chancery Court district. Here’s a Q&A from Judge Grant on the Better Chancery Practice Blog.
Update: Added opening paragraph and 5th and 11th Chancery, plus the links to the Q&A’s on the Better Chancery Practice blog.
