Re: “Supreme Court justices' attorneys admit error in missing deadline in Griffen suit

Rule 55. Default; Default Judgment

(a) Entering a Default. When a party against whom a judgment for affirmative relief is sought has failed to plead or otherwise defend, and that failure is shown by affidavit or otherwise, the clerk must enter the party's default.

The Federal Rule of Civil Procedure addressing default judgments doesn't appear to be discretionary.

Re: “Hutchinson puts Mike Freeze on Pollution Control Commission UPDATE

Sorry, but I grew up knowing Mike and he's a good guy. Don't really know upon what you base your aspersions, but I don't think they're well founded.

Re: “Arkansas Supreme Court racking up big legal bills in Wendell Griffen dispute

Since it's a civil rights claim against the Court, 42 USC 1988 provides for an attorney fee award to the "prevailing party" (whichever party). The taxpayers may not be on the hook depending on how the case is resolved. If it doesn't survive the pending motion to dismiss, Judge Griffen may have additional financial obligations in the future.
