In an extraordinary display of hubris and bad spelling (“resend” instead of “rescind”; “of the sum 30 lawyers”), Judge Hilburn has refused to hold a hearing as ordered by the Mississippi Supreme Court on whether he should recuse himself in the Singing River case because he does “not believe that the factual allegations set out in Denham’s and Burton’s motions require the Court’s recusal or the recusal of the Special Master.”
On January 28, 2016, the Mississippi Supreme Court ordered him to hold a hearing.
On the panel’s own motion, we find that Special Appointed Judge L. Breland Hilburn shall, within the next ten (10) days, conduct a hearing and issue a ruling on the matters of recusal of Special Appointed Judge L. Breland Hilburn and Special Master Britt Singletary.
