Quarles out of Supreme Court race
Starkville attorney Lydia Quarles has dropped out of the race to replace George Carlson on the Mississippi Supreme Court.
Quarles, who is also a senior policy analyst with Mississippi State’s Stennis Institute of Government, filed withdrawal papers with Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann’s office April 4, according to records there.
Quarles’ withdrawal leaves Batesville lawyer Flip Phillips and Oxford lawyer Josiah Coleman as the two remaining candidates. I have a message in to Quarles at her office. If and when she returns it, I’ll post what she says.
