Chief United States District Judge Louis Guirola has confirmed the court’s selection of Arthur S. Johnston III, currently the Madison County chancery clerk, to serve as clerk of court for the federal court in the Southern District of Mississippi. He will succeed J. T. Noblin, who earlier announced plans to retire from the post in January. Noblin has served in that capacity since 1990.
Johnston will assume the post after serving in his third term as Madison County chancery clerk. In addition to chancery clerk, Johnston also serves as clerk of the Board of Supervisors and as county treasurer and auditor in Madison County. Johnston had been instrumental in the implementation of the federal electronic court filing system in the Mississippi state courts. For these efforts, he received the Chief Justice Award at the annual meeting of the Mississippi Bar Association.
Johnston, a cum laude graduate of Delta State University, is a graduate of the University of Mississippi School of Law where he was the associate editor of the Law Journal. He was in the private practice of law for ten years before his election as the Madison County chancery clerk. He is a native of Cleveland.
