U.S. Supreme Court
Mississippi v. Turner, 498 U.S. 1306 (1991)
Mississippi v. Turner
Decided March 2, 1991
498 U.S. 1306
Mississippi has failed to show that a reduction in its appellate staff caused by budgetary cuts constitutes "good cause shown" under this Court's Rule 13.2, since it has not resulted from events unforeseen and uncontrollable by both counsel and client. Like any other litigant, the State must choose between hiring more attorneys and taking fewer appeals.
