Play nice, y'all

An unpublished opinion in Fly v. Yalobusha County, Miss. sounds like there's quite a backstory, judging by this footnote:
Appellants’ motion to strike the name of Honorable Thomas U. Reynolds from the response brief of Yalobusha County as an interested person is DENIED. Appellants’ motions for sanctions against attorney John J. Crow, Jr., and for award of attorney fees are DENIED. Appellee Yalobusha County’s motion for attorney fees and the motion for disciplinary action against R. Stewart Guernsey are also DENIED.
Goodness gracious. Can't we all just get along?


  1. The big, big clue is the name of the last lawyer. I can tell you from personal experience.

  2. Best line from Guernsey's motion to strike / motion for sanctions (they're all in one): "And Appellants pray for any pertinent sanctions and attorney fees for bringing this motion."

    Yep. He seems to be asking for sanctions for bringing his own motion.

  3. Ah. Forewarned is forearmed. Thanks for the tip!
