The lawsuit against UMMC and the IHL Board by 3 Jackson hospitals, over whether or not the Certificate of Need laws apply to UMMC, is being submitted without oral argument.
As usual, this news predates docket entries in many of the cases, so anyone checking the docket but not the calendar will wait a week or two before finding out about his or her case's status.
What is this case about? Argument April 4.
2011-IA-00456-SCT... I had forgotten this bit from the board-games case:
Haley Barbour, Governor of the State of Mississippi v. William J. McCoy, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Representative Johnny W. Stringer, and Jim Hood, Attorney General for the State of Mississippi ex rel. The State of Mississippi (Arg.)
Hon. Patricia D. Wise, Ruling Judge, Hinds County Chancery Court (4 vols.)
APPELLANT - Michael Wallace, Wise Carter Child & Caraway, P.A., Jackson
APPELLEE - George W. Neville and Meredith M. Aldridge, Office of the Attorney General, Jackson
Defendants disputed that there was water damage and suggested plaintiffs had suffered no personal injury. Particularly, a company maintenance man went to the apartment and could find no water damage. [Plaintiffs countered that the water was 6 to 8 inches deep.]That's, er, quite a fact issue there.
... Chris in comments says that the Barbour case has to do with the issue of partial vetos, and points us to an AG opinion in dispute.
