CASE ENTRY

King v. Mississippi Military Department

Mississippi Supreme Court: Because the Mississippi Constitution assigns courts, not executive agencies, the duty to interpret statutes, the Court announces “we abandon the old standard of review giving deference to agency interpretations of statutes.” Besides, when we deferred, we were all over the place: Sometimes we gave “great” deference, sometimes our deference was “illusory.” (H/t: @KeatsTabby)
