JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A federal appeals court has scolded Chief U.S. District Judge Henry Wingate for taking more than six years to enter a final judgment in a civil case.
The Clarion-Ledger reports that a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals commented about Wingate in its decision affirming the 2002 jury award of more than $1.3 million to Jimmy Ford of Brandon, in a lawsuit filed against his then-employer, Diversified Technology, Inc.
Wingate acknowledged the mistake on Wednesday, but he said he thought the judgment had been entered in the case. He said no one brought to his attention that one hadn't been issued.
