Supreme Court Election Heats Up–Not

I have limited experience with Chief Justice Waller, but have found him to be personable, approachable and very nice. In fact, everyone seems to like him. Just ask Earl Banks.

Whenever I hear lawyers start complaining about something at the Court—something that comes with the job—they never say anything negative about Justice Waller. If Mississippi lawyers voted on a who’s-who for the Court, Waller would probably be elected most popular.

The mark of a great judge is that even lawyers who lose a case before the judge talk about how much they like him or her. Waller seems to have that going for him.

All that suggests to me that Justice Waller will be very hard to beat in November.
