Chancery Approval

Yesterday, the Mississippi Supreme Court decided In the Matter of the Guardianship of O.D. located here.  The case dealt with the chancery court approving a minor's settlement.  An insurer removed a case to federal court and later the case was remanded once it was determined there was no basis for removal.  The chancery court then awarded $18,000.00 in sanctions for the removal.  This was ultimately affirmed.  The court reasoned that two decades of caseload required chancery approval and that the removal was for the purpose of delay.
