Today, former Governor Haley Barbour filed an amicus brief in the lawsuit that AG Jim Hood filed to fight the pardons. In it, Barbour’s team makes several arguments including . . .

1. Hood is conflicted. His Special Assistant AG gave advice on the pardons and substantially helped on the publication.

2. The venue of Hinds County Circuit Court is incorrect.

3. This is really a seperation of powers issue.
