Retirement and Resignation Festivities

November 13, 2018 § 9 Comments

At least 18 chancellors will be leaving the bench at the close of business on December 31 (actually on December 28, because the Governor decreed the 31st to be a holiday this year).

If there is a reception or ceremony scheduled in honor of your chancellor, readers of this blog might want to find out about it so that they can make plans to attend.

Please comment with any info you have. You can comment later on this same post as information develops.

The info I have as of today:

  • Chancellor Jerry Mason, District 12, retiring. Reception honoring him on December 14, 2018, from 1-3 pm in his Chancery courtroom on the second floor of the Lauderdale County Courthouse.
  • Chief Judge Joe Lee of the COA, retiring. Ceremony and reception immediately following at the COA en banc courtroom, Gartin Justice Building, Jackson, November 15, 2018, at 2 pm.
  • Chancellor John Grant, Rankin County. November 30th 1 – 3 pm. Rankin County Chancery Courthouse.
