December 28, 2015

Chief Justice Bill Waller Jr. issued this statement in response to Gov. Phil Bryant’s announcement that he will appoint Tenth District Chancellor Dawn Beam to the Supreme Court:

“Judge Beam not only has a distinguished record as a trial judge, but she has continually gone above and beyond the requirements of her office to improve the administration of justice. She has spearheaded the implementation of Mississippi Electronic Courts for the entire Tenth Chancery Court District, which will have the first district wide docket management system built in one operation. She has tirelessly worked to resolve issues regarding placement and supervision of abused and neglected children.”
