President's Message

In celebration of the 150 th Anniversary of the Mobile Bar Association, our spotlight this month is our Bulletin. We have been fortunate and blessed to have had two exceptional editors in the history of the Bar Bulletin, and with the retirement of Ferrell Anders last month, we began a new era in the life of our newsletter.

Ferrell took over the Bulletin in 1992. My favorite part – and the page I turned to first – was the sports column penned by Ben Harris, Jr., which provided scoring highlights of our Legal Eagles athletics teams. As Mark Twain would say, “there was things which he stretched, but mostly he told the truth.” This was the dawn of ESPN, and Ben was better than Berman. On the basketball court, who can forget All World Eddie Greene, Sid “Dr. Cool” Jackson hitting clutch free throws, Jimmy “Sky King” Duffy, and Norman Waldrop roaming the court taunting his teammates? Did Alan Christian really drive the lane for a 180 degree back stuffs? Edgar Walsh and Jay York coached the Barrister Nine Softballers, which featured Buddy Brown’s inside the park homeruns and fielding gems, and stellar play from Charlie Fleming, Craig Pittman and Danny Barlar. Micky Smith and Braxton Counts coached the flag football purple and maroon to gridiron glory. If you don’t believe we had great athletes in the Bar, check out all the league champion trophies at Bar Headquarters sometime.

Ferrell took over the newsletter from Mr. J. Edward Thornton, who had founded it in 1966. Mr. Thornton had served as president of the Alabama State Bar as well as the Mobile Bar Association. A Harvard Law graduate, Mr. Thornton and his Tom Landry style fedora were familiar fixtures in downtown Mobile. He included a monthly editorial in the bulletin, which of course generated letters to the editor, often reprinted.

I don’t know if Mr. Thornton handpicked Ferrell to be his successor, but if he did, he certainly got it right. So it makes sense that Ferrell has been tutoring, and has turned the reigns over to his young padawan, Julia Shreve. Julia has a journalism background and will be great in her new position. Thank you, Julia, and also those who have served in writing our other regular columns – Sandy Robinson, and now Kristy Dugan (Lawyers in the News); Duane Graham (Significant Decisions), and committee and section chairmen and women who update us on their important work.

And if you run into Ferrell, please thank him again for 27 years of outstanding editing and service to the MBA!

Ann's Article
In April of 1869, the Mobile Bar Association was incorporated by filing its Declaration of Incorporation pursuant to the Revised Code of Alabama of 1867.  At that time, the Association had 32 members and they all paid collateral, at varying levels, to start the association.  Its stated objectives were to establish a Law Library in the City of Mobile, to increase professional learning, and to cultivate friendly intercourse among the members of the Bar of Mobile.  Fast forward to 150 years later, we have over 1,000 members, a committee that still assists with the Law Library, and our mission remains the same: to elevate the legal profession to the highest possible standard, provide professional development, and to cultivate networking opportunities among the members of the Mobile Bar.  

The Mobile Bar Association has a rich history and now it is time to celebrate our 150 years of success.  Mark your calendars for Thursday, March 28 th .  The festivities will begin at the new federal courthouse located at 155 St. Joseph Street at 4:00 PM.  We will receive greetings from Mobile Bar President Mark Newell, Alabama State Bar President Sam Irby and U. S. District Judge Beaverstock. Our keynote speakers will be former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Judge William H. Pryor, Jr.  After Judge Pryor’s speech, we will leave the federal courthouse by second line, led by The Excelsior Band, to The Battle House Hotel where we will continue the celebration.  Our celebration at The Battle House Hotel will include recognizing five members that were admitted to practice law in Alabama in 1969, several toasts, and lots of pictures and memorabilia that reflect back on the last 150 years of the Mobile Bar Association.  The event will include hors d’ouvrves, wine, beer and a cash bar.  Please make plans to join us and celebrate our 150 years of success!

A special thank you to the Inns of Court for your assistance in securing the meeting room.

Committee Update
by Mitchell Lattof, Sr., Chairman:

I have the privilege of being appointed and serving as Chairman of the Archives & History Committee for the past five years from January 2014 to the present and am currently serving my sixth year. In 2014, the Committee decided to commence interviewing Senior Attorneys of the Mobile Bar Association. 

Our first interview was of Robert Denniston, the oldest Senior Attorney of the Mobile Bar Association, who was in his 90s, and Thomas Haas, who had practiced criminal law for many years and was in his late 80s. They graciously agreed to be interviewed together by our Committee. Court Reporter Donna Henderson volunteered her services to transcribe the interviews, and I videotaped the interviews. Following the interviews, the Video was edited, titled and uploaded to YouTube and presented to my Committee for approval and referral to the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee reviewed and accepted the video interviews. The Denniston and Haas interviews were the start of our Committee doing video interviews of Senior Attorneys for acceptance and showing by the Executive Committee. Subsequently, the Executive Committee established a YouTube Playlist Connection on its website to preserve this video and additional videos we submitted in later years. In our later reports to you, we will discuss some of the individual interviews the members might be interested in watching.

Housing First, Inc., stages the event at The Grounds and brings together health care providers, attorneys, law enforcement/court personnel, faith based organizations, businesses, government agencies, and other nonprofits to provide necessary services for the homeless in our community, at no cost to the clients. Attendees have access to legal assistance, dental and vision screenings, housing assistance and mainstream resources (food stamps, state IDs, and more). Those who volunteer for this event make a tremendous impact on their clients’ lives. At this year’s event we had over 100 clients sign in for legal assistance.

Why should YOU join MBA Women Lawyers (MBAWL)? Here are a few of the many reasons:
First, MBAWL strives to facilitate and encourage the advancement of Mobile and Baldwin County women lawyers in equity partnerships within law firms, as elected judges both locally and statewide, and as leaders in professional associations of lawyers nationwide.
Second, many of us face the struggle to find balance in our lives and to keep up with the heavy pace but still be present for our families. Our job is important and fulfilling, but it’s not easy. MBAWL offers a place to get advice from other professional women and to share advice you have gathered. It provides a place to talk about issues, learn, network, build relationships and friendships, and have fun.
Finally, MBAWL provides great resources for local women lawyers. MBAWL hosts monthly luncheons with speakers (offering CLE credit) and events throughout the year including networking opportunities during happy hour, a celebratory Trailblazer Tea in May, an annual networking event in October, and fitness classes. These events provide an opportunity for women lawyers in the Mobile and Baldwin County areas to network and establish personal and professional relationships.
Please sign up for our email list to keep up with all the meeting dates and activities. The next meeting will be announced soon. To be added to the email list, please email MBAWL President Laura Coker at , or MBAWL Secretary Catherine Spann at .
MBAWL’s 2019 Board Members include President Laura Coker, Immediate Past President Krissy McCulloch, Vice President Emily Killion, Treasurer Tiffany Smith, Secretary Catherine Spann, Historian Christine Segarra, Networking Event Co-chairs Ruth Lichtenfeld and Morgan Hofferber, and Trailblazer Tea Co-chairs: Lanice Turrens and Morgan Hofferber. Please feel free to reach out to any of these women if you have any questions.


The Mobile Bar Association Women Lawyers are currently soliciting nominations to honor an outstanding woman lawyer at the 8th Annual Trailblazer Tea in May. If there is someone you would like to nominate to receive this recognition, please send your nomination to MORGAN HOFFERBER at . The nomination should include a very brief description of why you believe the nominee would be a good candidate to receive the Trailblazer award. Past recipients of this prestigious award include: Helen J. Alford, Merceria L. Ludgood, Frank Fields Smith, Honorable Callie V.S. Granade, Beth Marietta-Lyons, Honorable Margaret A. Mahoney, Celia J. Collins, and M. Kathleen Miller. Nominations are due by February 22, 2019.

Reaffirming the rule that a non-movant’s non-objection to a motion to continue a hearing on a post-judgment motion did not constitute the “express consent” as required by Rule 59.1 to extend the 90-day period within which a trial court must rule on a post-judgment motion, the Court of Civil Appeals in Johnson v. Cox , No. 2170874 (Ala. Civ. App., November 9, 2018), held that it lacked jurisdiction over an appeal because the 90-day period had been exceeded, which meant that the appeal was untimely filed. The court also held that the trial court’s later entry of an order purporting to deny the post-judgment motion was a nullity because the 90-day period had long since expired.

Reaffirming the notion that venue is a threshold concept, the Supreme Court in Ex parte Nationwide Agribusiness Insurance Co. , No. 1171081 (Ala., November 16, 2018), held that a trial court had acted improperly in concluding that it would not rule on a defendant’s motion to transfer venue until the pretrial conference and, thus, issued a writ of mandamus compelling the trial court to rule earlier. The court noted that the delay in ruling meant that the moving party effectively had to complete discovery and other pretrial matters in what was alleged to be the wrong county, and that the party would have had very limited time after the ruling to take appropriate action if the motion were denied.

In Ex parte Killian Construction Co., No. 1170696 (Ala., November 2, 2018), the Supreme Court held that it was not unfair or seriously inconvenient for the parties to be required to litigate their claims in Missouri pursuant to the outbound forum selection clause in the governing contract. In particular, the Court held that the fact that the witnesses would have to travel from Alabama to Missouri was insufficient to constitute “serious inconvenience.”
