Today at the Mississippi Supreme Court…

Prior reports of this year’s Mississippi Supreme Court opinions can be found here.

There’s nothing much of interest in today’s Miss. Supreme Court hand down list.  Every opinion is unanimous, and there aren’t even any of those odd join-the-result-but-not-the-opinion votes, which is a good thing.  The number of interlocutory appeals continues to surprise me–  including the interlocutory appeal of a criminal case (the last one below)  Here’s what’s on the list:

  • A Graves opinion partially reversing a summary judgment grant in a nursing home negligence case.
  • A Waller opinion holding that an LLC is a “person” for purposes Miss. Code Ann. § 97-19-39 (Rev. 2006), a criminal fraud statute.

One odd thing on the list– a denial (without opinion) of a pro se motion to amend the Rule 15 (governing confidentiality of proceedings) of the Rules of Discipline for lawyers filed in February by someone named Dwight Springfield.
