MEL BROOKS, SPACEBALLS AND PARDONED INMATE JOINS MISSISSIPPI ACTIONS IN THE SEARCH FOR MORE MONEY. ANOTHER HINDS COUNTY REVIEW OF WHEN THE LAW APPLIES TO SOME. WITH A VIDEO BRIEF.
A variety of different stories have developed over ex-governor Haley Barbour’s attempt to release over 200 inmates from Mississippi’s prisons. Present actions in one of those released inmate’s actions high-lighted here in an earlier post.
Karen Irby, 41, receiving clemency from Barbour on his last day in office was ordered by Barbour, to serve three years on house arrest and two years under Department of Corrections’ supervision. Karen Irby’s new attorneys are going to court to force one of her former attorneys to turn over lawsuit records against the estate of her late ex-husband, Stuart M. Irby Sr.
Stuart Irby, was a philanthropist who committed suicide in January within days of his ex-wife’s release from prison. Barbour had commuted her 18-year sentence for manslaughter charge from a January 2009 crash that killing two doctors. Irby is seeking records from her attorney in a settled lawsuit that was filed against her and her then-husband, Stuart Irby by the family of two doctors killed in the auto crash.
After a settlement with Karen Irby, The family members of Dr. Lisa Dedousis and Dr. Mark Pogue, settled a lawsuit against Mr. Stuart Irby for an undisclosed amount. Karen Irby seeks records of deposition testimony to bolster her lawsuit which alleges members of her late ex-husband’s family are conspiring to write her out of his will. In a lawsuit filed, Karen Irby says she was due to get $4 million dollars, a yacht and home from a November 2007 will of Stuart Irby.
She claims in a lawsuit that she and her step child allegedly due to inherit a $1 million dollar trust fund were written out of his will in 2010. Irby’s former attorney has refused to give her documents from the case because of an agreement among lawyers to keep certain documents confidential. Ed Pittman, retired Mississippi Supreme Court Justice said clients in general are entitled to their files for review or for copies but not to deplete. But legal problems arise with agreements to keep records confidential as a part of a settlement. Yet the client should be entitled to their file,” said Pittman.
A motion was filed in Hinds County Circuit Court to force a release of Irby’s files. Attorneys wouldn’t comment on efforts to obtain the records regarding confidentiality stipulations, agreements or protective orders. How can a lawyer refuse to give a client a copy of documents from their file in which the lawyer was being paid to provide legal services. How a lawyer could refuse to give a client their file be applicable to law is not understood.
