Jackson Advocates Plan to Fight Unconstitutional Court System in Mississippi

Advocates in Jackson, Mississippi are fighting back against a new law that creates an unconstitutional court system. The law, signed by Governor Tate Reeves, would expand state control over Jackson’s judicial system, and many are calling it a power grab.

The new law would allow the governor to appoint a majority of the judges on the court, and would give the state control over the court’s budget. This would effectively strip Jackson of its autonomy and its ability to make decisions about its own judicial system.

The law has been met with widespread condemnation from Jackson residents and civil rights advocates. They argue that the law is unconstitutional and violates the principle of separation of powers. They also argue that it is an attack on the autonomy of Jackson and its citizens.

The advocates are planning to fight the law in court. They are also calling on the state legislature to repeal the law, and are urging citizens to contact their representatives and voice their opposition.

This is not the first time that Mississippi has attempted to take control of Jackson’s judicial system. In the past, the state has tried to pass laws that would give it control over the city’s budget and other aspects of its governance.

The advocates argue that the new law is a violation of the Constitution and an attack on the autonomy of Jackson and its citizens. They are calling on the state legislature to repeal the law and are urging citizens to contact their representatives and voice their opposition.
