REPORT - Justice Randolph tells CLE participants that MSSC says Executive Branch has no authority to cut Judiciary budget *UPDATE x2*

According to CLE participants on the Coast, Justice Randolph announced that at 1 p.m. CST today, the Mississippi Supreme Court issued an order declaring that the Governor Barbour has no authority to cut the budget of the state's Judiciary.  No order is on the MSSC's website yet. This will have quite an impact on the ongoing budget battle in the Legislature.

UPDATE at 2:07 p.m. - I have a copy of the order on the way, and will post it as soon as I get it.

UPDATE at 2:16 p.m. - NMC's got the order up.
