Down goes Doe. Doe wants rematch.

Hinds County Chancellor Dewayne Thomas ordered Ole Miss to release the name of John Doe within seven days.  Judge Thomas issued the order this afternoon after a hearing was held in Hinds County Chancery Court this morning.


The Kingfish and Steve Robertson filed public records request for the NCAA 2016 and 2017 notices of allegations against the football program.  Ole Miss provided the notices but redacted the names of fourteen boosters cited by the NCAA in the notices.  We both submitted public records complaints to the Ethics Commission.  The Commission ruled on July 14 that the notices were public records and that Ole Miss should disclose the names of the boosters.

The Commission allowed John Doe to file a brief while it considered the complaint.  John Doe squawked loudly and repeatedly that he was allowed to intervene in the case but in reality, the Commission merely allowed him to submit an opinion, similar to an amicus curiae brief.

The Chancellor held a hearing on the matter this morning - while drinking from a large Ole Miss glass.  Attorney Chris Lott represented an absent Mr. Robertson while attorney Jane Tucker represented yours truly.  John Doe did not appear in court and was represented by attorney David McCarty.  No media attended the hearing.

Mr. Robertson's attempt to get the Chancellor to recuse himself from the case or transfer it to Judge Owens went nowhere.  The court ruled that John Doe was not a party to the Ethics Commission proceedings and thus "lacks standing to pursue the final order."  John Doe would lose this fight even if he did have standing to challenge the Commission's order.  Mr. Doe didn't have a reasonable expectation of privacy where his name appeared in a public record.   The Commission held that any privacy right of Mr. Doe was outweighed by a strong public interest.

However, never fear because John Doe did not disappoint those of us following this tale.  He has already filed a notice of appeal and will seek an emergency stay of the Court's ruling from the Mississippi Supreme Court.  Stay tuned.






What did John Doe exactly do? Start on page 77, #14.

7 days? Plenty time to appeal and get a stay.

If this guy is a lawyer, as consistently rumored, think about it, lawyer jokes aside. He premeditatedly cheated,lied and broke the rules. All to buy a football player(s). Would you hire him? Trust him? Sad priorities. Forever tainted.

Any ethical issues with the bar?

His white suv should be stripped of black bear stuff, private school stickers and 30a crap. So predictable.

Thanks for the "news"! This is so much more relevant than public corruption scandals, hate crimes, murder, etc.

Judge probably understood that stay of release of name of John Doe was meaningless. His identity and Booster 12 are well known in the Jackson Ridgeland legal community based on the description of their vehicles in NCAA response to Ole Miss.

Booster 12's name should have never been stayed from release. Booster 14 had no right to keep Booster 12's name secret.This makes Booster 14 look awful bad. It also appears that he Leo Lewis more than $10,000.00,and he did not even sign with Ole Miss.

Doe probably will appeal. He (or she or it) seems pretty determined to remain anonymous (just like most commenters here).

NCAA Response was that in February 2015, attorney Booster 14 drove a 2012 black BMW 750 LI and his paralegal drove a silver Accura sedan but sometimes drove her husband's red Hummer. They are well known in Jackson Ridgeland metro legal community. Lots of other clues from NCAA.

5:27, some of us can multi-task. If you haven't mastered the art yet, start by going by the store and picking up a pack of gum. But don't chew it while you walk out - you probably need to practice on something where you can't hurt yourself.

Once you have practiced a little, maybe you can read the news of the day while also reading about things of general interest. Maybe start with the comic strips in your local paper though before you get into anything important. Once prepared, come back and join the conversation.

But this is so much better than the comics,besides I really enjoy the AAEC cartoons on this site too. Bet you never noticed...expand your horizons look around the page read a little.

Can't wait for his name to get released as lawsuit #2 will be filed against a Mr. Leo Lewis. If Leo keeps it up, his NFL earnings won't ever see the light of day.

Anonymous said...

There has been no determination that the booster paid any fb player to sign with Ole Miss. Only a story by a certain MSU athlete who said he was promised payment from another University. Interesting.

Anonymous said...

There are many MSU lawyer alums who will gladly represent Leo in any suit filed by John Doe and grind his dumb ass to a pulp

Anonymous said...

9:58 You are a naïve guy. Why is Doe fighting like hell to avoid much deserved ridicule? He's dirty. A dirty plaintiff's lawyer? Redundant.
Suing the kid will open up a mine field for the dirty bear program, like the idiot with the tee shirt shop. Think discovery. Think depositions under oath. Things unavailable to an ncaa investigation. Please don't throw Leo in the briar patch. The ncaa like the world, knew bears were dirty. Think Ala and Ga. They will forever be known as chronic cheaters. Idiots kept cheating while being investigated, per ncaa findings. "A culture of cheating" per espn.

John Doe can spend all of his money fighting this but no court will ever rule he has a right to keep his identity secret. He is delusional if he thinks otherwise.

Anonymous said...

If the rumors are true, I am highly disappointed in the true identity of John Doe. I thought it was going to be someone powerful or whatever, an All the King's Men-type character.

I aspire to be a booster for the cheerleaders and Rebelettes. Is that allowed???

Why should we excuse and/or support any of those who are bringing shame to our university and state. Instead our effort should be to rid our universities of this foolishness not finger point and laugh at the troubles of someone else.

Thank goodness we have the state a&m college to carry the banner of cleanness for our fine state with their historical decision to allow the prince of darkness to lead their program for many years (and were proud of it because they won a few games).

Anonymous said...

People tend to forget or not care in the first place that universities are for education and not kid games. For many years we have been changing from education to sports.
When winning in some sport is made to be more important than an education there is too many people who will resort to criminal ways to win.

Anonymous said...

@8:55, Leo is a far cry from a kid. Fortunately, we have the ability to sue those who make up slanderous/libelous statements about us for his or her own gain in this country. Leo needed to lie to cover up his payments everyone knew he received from someone, most likely a MSU booster. What better way to kill two birds with one stone than to blame it on an Ole Miss booster under the guise of limited immunity? Too bad he and the MSU admin were naive enough to think this faulty plan wouldn't have any consequences. Thankfully, there are always consequences for poorly chosen actions. Where's the 2017 MSU roster by the way?

Hey 10:54, go study up on what has happened to student enrollment, fund raising, endowment explosion and physical plant expansion in Tuscaloosa since Lord Saban arrived in 2007. Hint: student enrollment is up 58% since he brought back championship level football. You are naïve beyond all measure if you think education has a Chinaman's chance nowadays.

Thank goodness Mississippi is not ranked 50th in everything good and 1st in everything bad. Otherwise, we would not have time for all of this. Oh wait...never mind....

Lots of Ole Miss fans and some sport show host have not read NCAA Response and Summary of the Case.Leo
Lewis is supported by other credible evidence. Farrah, Booster 12, and Booster 14 were determined to be not credible by NCAA investigators. There testimony was weak and not believable. I do not know if Leo Lewis was telling the truth,Farrah,and Boosters certainly were not believable. I feel pity for Boosters 12 and 14 and their families.They got caught up in a game that they were inexperienced in.Poor Booster 14 was made a fool of by a kid. Boosters 12 and 14 had no street smarts.They were pigeons.

@1:39, There is no doubt that John Doe had forbidden contact with Leo; however, that doesn't prove payment was made to Leo, especially when Leo didn't admit to receiving the payment in his first interview but did so in the second interview after Ole Miss had given the NCAA a Snapchat video of Leo flashing wads of cash around on the night of signing day and a recording of Leo's mother asking for money for his signature.

The OM base will likely accept the verdict and move on much like the Libs have the president. Like little kids, kicking and fussing... not wanting to take the medicine. You want it to end? Then accept the rulings on 9/11 and start over. Good grief, Charlie Brown.

Anonymous said...

The ncaa believes Leo. End of discussion. There is no standard of proof to "convict". It's not a court proceeding. No cross examination. Want to be an ncaa school? That's the rule. All the rest is noise from anonymous posters. Did Leo get money from State. Probably. Like most investigations, somebody has to turn. Immunity is typically needed and granted. No different here.

Wall Street Journal today has an interesting bear article. Leo is the least of their problems. Smells like a cover up of old Hugh's whoring around. Wait till it is tied to recruits. The end times for bears.

Shit, I don't think John Grisham could write a better thriller than what's actually going on with Ole Mess. Flim Flam, Bim Bam, Ole Piss, what a SHAM!!

@2:32, No, the INVESTIGATORS believe Leo. Period. Unfortunately for you live and die by every OM moment State fans, the COI is who makes the final decision of whether or not Leo is believable. But, by all means, keep fellating Steve and yourselves.

Anonymous said...

6:29 Grasp that last straw before you drown. You go ahead and believe the cheating lawyer bag man. Right. That's why he is fighting to keep his name out of the public. Didn't work. Speaking of "fellating"(sic) how's your gospel spouting ex-coach doing? Somebody paid the kid to "commit" to the bears. Are you saying it wasn't a bear booster? Some disinterested third party? Tooth fairy? Or that he said he was paid by a bear booster but really wasn't? Just made it up? To what end? You people are truly delusional. Judging by the published ncaa response to the bear answer to allegations, you have insulted their intelligence.
Sometimes you get the bear, and sometimes the bear gets you. In the end it will be the academic cheating that really hangs you, anyway.

There is something very wrong with our legal system when we have so many John Does, booster #12, and booster # 14.
Put the names up or admit our legal system is easily bought.

Anonymous said...

10:01 you are right. Our judges can be bought. KF has reported on a wife beater in wayne County and you see how much leaniency the Clark boy got. This whole mess to me is not about State and Ole Miss. It's about revealing the corruption in our legal system.

For instance, does a policeman go against another policeman? No. They have a brotherhood. Lawyers do also. I'm just a country boy who doesn't have a dog in this race. It just makes me angry to know that if I ever have to hire one of these guys (I'm talking about hiring an attorney....not "hiring" a an illiterate public school flunky who can't speak good English
to play football), I would wonder how much would he actually be working for me or just for himself.

Everyone knows judges can be bought. Anyone ever heard of judge shopping?
Why do you think lawyers try to get their cases changed to certain judges?
Usually that isn't even necessary. Just drop the money in a different pocket is enough.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
