Supreme Court declines appeal of lawyer, ex-judges
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court has declined appeals of corruption convictions from a prominent Mississippi lawyer and two former state judges.
The justices today let stand without comment a ruling by a federal appeals court that upheld most convictions of the lawyer, Paul Minor, and the judges, John Whitfield and Wes Teel. The men were convicted for their roles in a complicated scheme involving loans for the judges and allegedly favorable rulings in civil cases involving Minor.
The cases are Minor v. U.S., 09-1422, Teel v. U.S., 09-11039, and Whitfield v. U.S., 09-11067.
