Mark you calendar – Tuesday ethics panel at UM Law

Judge Henry Lackey – who needs no introduction here – will join Oxford attorney Tom Freeland and Judge Michael P. “Mike” Mills in a discussion of judicial ethics hosted by the University of Mississippi School of Law. The panel discussion will be held in room 108 at 4:00 on Tuesday. (h/t folo for the reminder)

Freeland, not to be confused with his brother who also practices law in Oxford, is the popular NMC of folo-fame whose father practiced law with Judge Lackey. Mills, by the way, is also a talented writer and author of Tombigbee Tales.

The discussion offers a “live demonstration” of judicial ethics, as well as what’s certain to be an interesting and lively conversation – definitely no “bull” much less a mention of beef! Freeland represents indicated Georgia businessman Robert Moultrie in USA v Moultrie that will be tried in Judge Mills courtroom in August.

If you’re in the area, be there or be square – or better yet, be there and then go to the Square and enjoy Oxford.

(Please no kids if you decide to watch the online episode)

OK here is some family oriented fare. We start with Elvis. Continue reading “And Now For Something Completely Different….”

Bonnie and Clyde and Clyde and Clyde?

Times must be tough here as would be felons took our the slabbed version of the Allstate challenge, renamed it the Bank Robbery Challenge and proceeded to see how many banks could be robbed here in 24 hours.  Thankfully no one was hurt. The Sun Herald tells the sad story of 4 banks and 4 robberies in 24 hours.

Robbers held up four Coast banks within 24 hours as of Friday afternoon.

Police scrambled in response to three of the robberies on Friday, which included a hostage situation with a highway pursuit and a manhunt through woods.

Two of the three robberies resulted in arrests by day’s end Friday. A fourth from Thursday night remained unsolved. Continue reading “Bonnie and Clyde and Clyde and Clyde?”
