    Tree compromise OK’d for parking lot

    The Oxford Planning Commission reconsidered and approved a variance Monday to the owners of Oxford East Shopping Center that will allow them to plant fewer trees in the parking lot than required in the city’s landscaping ordinance and granted a parking lot variance  to Rainbow Cleaners, allowing them to have fewer parking spaces at its new spot than required in the city ordinance since most of the traffic is short term and the drive-through window reduces the need for parking. (December 14, 2010, Page 1)

        FBI agent sues authors of Scruggs’ book

        An FBI agent in Oxford claims a former federal prosecutor and a political blogger made false statements against him in a book they wrote about the judicial bribery scandal involving former trial attorney Richard “Dickie” Scruggs.

        Oxford attorney Christi McCoy filed the suit on Dec. 2 in Lafayette County Circuit Court on behalf of her client, Philip Halbert “Hal” Neilson.

        The suit names authors Tom Dawson and Alan Lange and the publishing company, The Pediment Group, and claims in the book, “King of Torts,” Dawson, a retired U.S. assistant attorney, lied and made slanderous statements about Neilson in his book in retaliation for Neilson filing an official complaint against Dawson in 2001. (December 10, 2010, Page 2A)

                    Court overturns OPD bust

                    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit reversed a lower court’s decision to deny a motion to suppress evidence discovered by Oxford Police Department officers during a malicious mischief investigation in 2007.

                    OPD officers pulled over a vehicle seen leaving the area where someone had thrown something at a window in an apartment complex. Drugs and a firearm were found in the vehicle and Cahafer Benjamin and Kao Wokoma were indicted on drug and firearm charges.

                    The two men filed a motion with the U.S. District Court to suppress the evidence, claiming the officer has no reasonable suspicious to stop the vehicle. The lower court denied the motion, however, on Monday the Court of Appeals reversed their conviction and overturned the denial to suppress the evidence. (November 30, 2010, Page 2)
