YP vs. Hood: the gift that keeps on giving

LegalNewsline Web site answers Hood’s argument on sealed State Farm settlement: “Since there is no ‘real objection’ from Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood, his Hurricane Katrina-related settlement with State Farm Insurance Cos. must be unsealed, the publisher of a state political Web site is arguing.

Jackson New Media, Inc., the publisher of Y’all Politics, made the argument in a reply brief filed in federal court Friday. Hood had written in a response to JNM’s motion that he had no opposition to making the settlement public but, as an officer of the court, had to remind U.S. District Judge David Bramlette of existing case law that supports keeping the settlement sealed.”
