Goodson draws home staters for appeal in class action case

Posted By on Mon, Jan 16, 2017 at 11:53 AM

John Goodson, the Texarkana lawyer, has a Feb. 7 date with the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to argue that he shouldn't have been disciplined by federal District Judge P.K. Holmes for switching a class action case against an insurance company out of federal court into a state court that speedily approved a settlement.

Goodson will argue before three judges — Lavenski Smith, Bobby Shepherd and Duane Benton, all George W. Bush appointees, Arkansas Business notes. I'd add that Smith and Shepherd both hail from Arkansas. That can cut both ways, of course.
