The Who and the Why of this Blog

The Who — Kenny Griffis, Judge, Court of Appeals of the State of Mississippi

The Why — I want to.

Actually, I think I can provide some information that would be useful to the members of The Mississippi Bar and others.  I am very interested in the role judges play, and I want to help lawyers practice law.  That is what I plan to write about.

I will not comment on cases that are pending in the trial courts or Court of Appeals.  I may comment on cases pending before the Supreme Court, but we will see.  Nothing written in this blog should be considered as a comment on any pending case.  Also, nothing written in this blog should be considered as legal advice.

I don’t consider it appropriate in this blog to criticize judges, lawyers or the parties to a case.  I don’t intend to do so.

I’m new to blogging.  Hopefully, I will improve and offer useful information.  Please have patience with me. Whatever is written in this blog is my responsibility/fault.  Please do not consider what I may write as the opinion of the Court of Appeals or any of my fellow judges.  Often they disagree with me.
