Wilson v. Scruggs motion to recuse all the judges in Jackson

It turns out that Judge DeLaughter never entered a final order in the case, and so it’s still open. That surely opens up the options for Wilson’s lawyers! (They are Vicki Slater, Bill Kirksey, Charles Merkel, and Cynthia Mitchell). So as an opening salvo, the motion notes that DeLaughter has recused himself from all other cases involving Peters either sub rosa (Eaton) or super rosa, but that he has not recused himself in this one. The motion then asks for recusal from DeLaughter, and further, noting that the local judges really won’t want to get in the business of investigating their brother-on-the-bench, asks they all recuse themselves so this case can go forward.
