Ethel Mitchell.  The opinion is a victory for the families of three men who spent a collective 83-years in prison for a rape and murder they did not commit, as well as policyholders. The court held that the insurance carriers had a duty to defend Forrest County who was sued by the estates of the wrongfully convicted defendants.
