The blog is the product of Jane Tucker, an attorney who has been licensed to practice law in Mississippi since 1988. It focuses on activity in the Mississippi Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. It is not affiliated with the Mississippi Supreme Court. With electronic filing now mandatory (making filings available to all to see), practitioners will have a better understanding of the issues coming before the Court. Her hope is that the blog will be a useful resource. Comments, suggestions encouraged.
Ms. Tucker does lots of appeals, both civil and criminal, and assists other attorneys in civil and criminal cases: motions and responses to motions for summary judgment, motions to remand, etc. For examples, see Littleton v. Dollar General Corp., 2013 U.S.Dist. LEXIS 42351 (S.D.Miss. 2013); Hunter v. Progressive Cas. Ins. Co., 2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 127013 (S.D. Miss. 2012); Bland v.
