JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - State Rep. Bob Evans, who represents a trial judge in disciplinary matter, is asking the Mississippi Supreme Court to make no decision in the case until after the 2014 legislative session ends in April.

Evans, in a motion filed Friday, says state law allows the Supreme Court to suspend activity in cases where a lawyer for one of the parties is a member of the Legislature. Evans, D-Monticello, represents District 91 in the Mississippi House.

The Supreme Court has not ruled on the motion.

Evans represents Chancery Judge Joe Dale Walker in the disciplinary proceedings filed by the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance. The commission is seeking an interim suspension with pay for Walker while its inquiry continues into alleged inappropriate actions regarding a conservatorship in Walker’s court.
