Stevie Rushing supports clients through a case’s entire life cycle — from the filing of the complaint to the final argument on appeal. Stevie has extensive experience litigating in both state and federal trial courts. That experience largely consists of representing correctional healthcare providers in Section 1983 lawsuits and defending financial institutions against allegations ranging from improper broker-dealer activity to wrongful foreclosure. She has handled similar claims on appeal, taking the lead on briefs to the Mississippi Court of Appeals, the Mississippi Supreme Court, and the United States Supreme Court.
Stevie also has developed a unique practice assisting clients who wish to protect their confidential information from disclosure under the Mississippi Public Records Act, which is Mississippi’s equivalent of the federal Freedom of Information Act. She has not only sought protective orders under the MPRA for numerous clients, but she also has helped clients determine how best to prepare confidential information for submission to public entities. Because of her experience with the MPRA, Stevie can help clients navigate similar statutes in other states within the client’s footprint.
