Lamar Won’t Run Again

January 19, 2016 § Leave a comment

Turnover on the MSSC continues with Justice Ann Lamar’s announcement that she will not seek re-election. Her position is up for re-election in November, 2016. Her term ends on December 31, 2016.

Lamar, from Senatobia, was elected to an 8-year term in November, 2008, from the Northern District. She had been appointed in 2007.

Change in judicial positions, particularly appellate posts, sometimes seems to occur at a glacial pace, but that is certainly not the case this year and last. Lamar’s is the third MSSC position to turn over since December, 2015. This one will be filled by election. The other two — Justices Beam and Maxwell — were filled by Governor Bryant’s appointment. There is still a vacant COA post in the Southern District awaiting appointment.
