Supreme Court ruling
Hinds County Circuit Judge Jeff Weill has scored a pretty clear victory in his efforts to keep criminal cases flowing into his courtroom.
On Friday, the Mississippi Supreme Court stayed an order by Senior Circuit Judge Tomie Green stripping Weill and Judge Winston Kidd of their abilities to preside over criminal cases.
The decision was handed down on July 27, four days before Green’s order was slated to take effect. The order will be stayed until further notice.
