    Default Re: Alienation of Affection in Mississippi

    When was the last case won by either plaintiff or defendant in the state of Mississippi and what county. Is Mississippi in the process of abolishing this law?

    Thank you,

    As Happy Trails noted there is a pretty good discussion on this issue as relating to Mississippi in the archives. Alienation of affections is still a viable cause of action in Miss., so far as I know--it is a common law (judge made) tort. I see as recently as 2004 the Miss. legislature sought to abolish it but the bill died in committee. You can always expect litigants to argue for the abolition of such torts either by the courts or by the legislature. I believe there's a case before the Miss. Supreme Court involving an appeal from a $600K plus judgment given in an alienation case--it went before that court recently on another issue--you may want to check the status on the Miss. Supreme Court's website. Here's an older article discussing the alienation issue generally.http://www.clarionledger.com/news/0307/10/m08.html

    Additional information:

    I believe Litigator is referring to Fitch vs. Valentine which was AFFIRMED - 01/11/2007

    Johnny Valentine vs Jerry Fitch Sr. was in the Circuit Court of Marshall County.

    ------------

    Another interesting case is HANCOCK vs. WATSON which was REMANDED - 1/09/2007

    The case of Roger Lionel Hancock vs. David Steven Watson was in Hinds County Circuit Court.

    You got it! Good research. I just remembered reading about it in a news article.
