Justice Pierce to MJC

December 15, 2015 § 1 Comment

MSSC Justice Randy Pierce is stepping down from his Mississippi Supreme Court seat to take on directorship of the Mississippi Judicial College (MJC). The appointment is effective February 1, 2016.

MJC is the body that is responsible for training and continuing education of Mississippi judges at all levels, court clerks, and court reporters. It also compiles data on the judicial branch for the Mississippi Legislature. MJC is a division of the University of Mississippi, and has its offices on campus in Oxford.

Justice Pierce stated that he had already made the decision not to seek another term when his current one expires in 2017. Justice Pierce is a resident of Greene County, and was elected from MSSC District 2, which is the southernmost district of the state.

The official MSSC announcement is at this link. An article from Mississippi Press-News at Gulflive.com is at this link.

Only yesterday Phillip Thomas had a post on his blog about Justice David Chandler’s decision to leave the court to take over the state’s troubled foster-care program, and how other contested seats in upcoming elections will change the face of the court over the next few years. Looks like that is already happening.
