  2. 2. Keith Ball of Jackson New Southern District Magistrate Judge : Mississippi Litigation Re... Page 1 of 1Mississippi Litigation Review & CommentaryPosted at 2:40 PM on November 15, 2009 by Philip ThomasKeith Ball of Jackson New Southern District Magistrate JudgeKeith Ball of Jackson has been named the new Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of Mississippi.Ball replaces the popular retiring Magistrate Judge James Sumner. Ball beat out four other finalists andmany more applicants from a field narrowed by the Magistrate Selection Panel. The sitting SouthernDistrict Judges made the selection.Ball is originally from Jackson and is a 1990 graduate of the University of Mississippi School of Law. g y g yHe practiced in Jackson as a civil litigation defense lawyer with Phelps Dunbar and Currie Johnsonbefore moving to Louisville. In Louisville he had a general practice that is typical for many small townlawyers. He stayed in Louisville for about five years before returning to Jackson for another stint withCurrie Johnson. At the time of his selection as Magistrate Judge, Ball was working as the Director ofDevelopment at Reformed University Ministries. popular Magistrate. The fact that he has two stints with the same law firm suggests I expect Ball to be a p p p gthat he gets along with people and does not burn bridges.I am not nearly as concerned that Ball drinks the defense side cool-aide because of his years in a general t bpractice in Louisville. This comment is not a slam of defense lawyers. I would not want a judge whodrinks the plaintiff side cool-aide either.Great judges are the ones who both sides believe are fair. Ball has the potential to be that kind of judge.Comments (0) Read through and enter the discussion with the form at the endwww.mslitigationreview.com Philip W.
