Justice meets justice in Arkansas case

PLEASE ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE MYSELF: Justice Goodson.
  • PLEASE ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE MYSELF: Justice Goodson.
Amicus curious brief from Arkansas Business:

Arkansas Supreme Court Justice Courtney Hudson Goodson attended the Jan. 7 oral argument before the U.S. Supreme Court of a case out of Miller County over the legality of a class-action legal strategy used extensively by her husband, John Goodson.

What’s more, she had a meeting that day with one of the justices who will decide the question: Antonin Scalia.

Nothing but an exchange of pleasantries, all say. (Truth: Expecting a pro-trial lawyer opinion out of Scalia under any circumstance is a stretch, whether or not the case was attended by a pro forma introduction to a comely Arkansas jurist attending her husband's big day in court.)

John "Slick" Goodson's big paydays from class action work in Texarkana are getting growing attention, as we mentioned previously.
