Statute of Interest

Mississippi Code Annotated 93-5-23 provides as follows:  "The court may, in its discretion, exclude all persons from the court room during the trial except the officers of the court, attorneys engaged in the case, parties to the suit and the witness being examined."  The statute would be not be applicable to the extent it conflicts with the Rules of Evidence concerning when a party may be excluded in an abuse situation.
