Wednesday night line

Posted By on Wed, Jan 18, 2012 at 5:22 PM

It's open. Final thoughts:

* ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE: I mentioned yesterday a complaint from an out-of-state lawyer about Arkansas lawyers who didn't report potential juror misconduct in one of the West Memphis Three cases in 1994. I said then that the lawyers have always explained that there were bound to silence by the attorney-client relationship. One of those lawyers, Lloyd Warford, elaborated on that in a comment to Mara Leveritt.

* GO, NEWT, GO: CNN polling says Mitt Romney's lead over Newt Gingrich is shrinking in South Carolina. Nobody ever hurt themselves by race-baiting in the state that gave us Fort Sumter.

* TARGETING CIGARETTE MONEY: Sen. Bill Pritchard, an old fan of drug courts, is leading a legislative charge to raid tobacco settlement money for drug courts. Gov. Mike Beebe is opposed.

* BEEBE: LIKE I SAID BEFORE, NO STATE EMPLOYEE PAY RAISES: He reiterated today. Also said he wasn't inclined to further bailout a fund that pays court personnel with special court revenues. Courts will either have to figure out how to step up collections or "reprioritize" expenses.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
