Phillip Thomas at the Mississippi Litigation Blog has two nice posts. It may be confirmation bias, because he agrees with me on both (and in one explicitly so), but the posts are both worth reading.
One is about the Rebelwood case, and (like me) thinks that Justice Chandler got it right: The police report was double hearsay and should have been excluded as such, regardless of all the talk about its trustworthiness. Justice Chandler’s opinion was the only one that dealt with the hearsay issues in a rigorous way.
The other post is a follow-up on the controversy about Justice Graves and the judicial performance opinions. Thomas shares my opinion that this controversy would not have occurred but for the really terrible habit of Mississippi Supreme Court justices’s unexplained votes (dissenting or concurring-in-part without written opinions). This moment provides the wonderful object lesson this problem has always needed.
