“Susan” is in good company as this is not Slabbed’s first rodeo on this general issue. I’ll add there are two tracks that can be taken to unmask anonymous commenters in civil and/or criminal with criminal being what I would term the fast track. There is a fair amount of law in this area that I will not go into but if I were the person behind Susan I’d lawyer up ASAP.
Next up is a very interesting read from the Hancock Supervisors meeting. If I were on the Board of Sups I think I’d want DMR Commissioner Jolynne Trapani at the next meeting to explain the deal that has been cut for the ice house no one knew anything about to be built on the beach in Hancock County.
The Sun Herald found no joy at the Court of Appeals, which reversed Chancellor Schloegel. As of September 2, it was Writ time at the Mississippi Supreme Court, which has not yet ruled whether or not they will be taking the case. Click below to get the 13 page Writ filed earlier this month:
True dat on this not being Bill Walker’s DMR. In several respects my own opinion as a DMR watcher would be that its worse. Despite his penchant for self enrichment Walker was a scientist while his replacement is a local GOP good ol’ boy political hack. And the wasting of tax money continues regardless.
Anita’s story had a quote from Miller implying this boat would be used in a law enforcement role but Slabbed’s sources have all insisted it is used to catch Red Snapper (to the delight of the Delta Supper Club). The contradiction in using a tricked out fishing boat for law enforcement could be why the commentary on Miller summoning the Sun Herald for a PR moment was so immediately negative.
With the tip of the hat to our tipster I’d like to share with everyone the boat DMR Executive Director Jamie Miller authorized for use in the snapper sampling program per Slabbed New Media’s source, who is been granted anonymity as they are not authorized to publicly discuss such matters. The next step was to issue the call for pictures:
Attention Mississippi DMR employees and stakeholders: Slabbed needs a picture and unless you’re under a rock you know what we want. TY.
Of course the first thing I had to do was figure out the identity of the long fabled in comments “Cake Eater” and that is mission accomplished. My next step was to enlist some help which I did. I then set off checking cases in both Chancery and Circuit Court in Harrison County on Mississippi Electronic Courts as well as the Federal Court system on PACER. I spent nearly two hours looking and came up empty. Yesterday I heard from the last of those I reached out to for help and everyone came up empty.
If there is a lawsuit related to the Mississippi DMR and/or the Cake Eater we’ve not been able to find it. If any of you folks know more about this and wish to leak it out I’m happy to take leaks. Visit the contact page for more information. A case name or even help narrowing down the venue would be helpful. Thank you.
