My name is Jane Tucker and I’ve been practicing law in Mississippi for 27 years. This blog 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. I hope this blog will be a useful guide. Comments, suggestions encouraged.
I do lots of appeals, both civil and criminal, and assist 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. Jackson Metrocenter Mall, Ltd., 2010 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 9794 (S.D. Miss. 2010); Kelly v. Sailormen, Inc., 2008 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 85772 (S.D. Miss. 2008).
In the last few years, I’ve won five criminal cases on appeal including Yarbrough v. State decided May 20, 2014; Clark v. State, 127 So.3d 292 (Miss. App. 2013); Herrington v. State, 102 So. 3d 1241 (Miss. App. 2012); Johnson v. State, 2014 Miss. LEXIS 150 (Miss. 2014); and White v. State, 127 So. 3d 170 (Miss. 2013).
I’ve also won the following cases: Williams v. State, 54 So.3d 212 (Miss. 2011); S.G. v. D.C., 13 So.3d 269 (Miss. 2009); Lanier v. State, 684 So.2d 93 (Miss. 1996); Shaffer v. State, 740 So.2d 273 (Miss. 1999); Franklin v. Franklin, 858 So. 2d 110 (Miss. 2003); Kea v. State, 986 So.2d 358 (Miss.App. 2008); Foster v. Noel, 715 So. 2d 174 (Miss. 1998); Davis v.
