(WMC-TV) - Judge Joe Brown has filed an appeal of his contempt charge and has asked a criminal court judge to delay proceedings against him until another court makes a decision on that appeal.
Brown's attorneys have filed an appeal of the case. At the same time, they filed a simultaneous motion late Thursday afternoon to stay all criminal proceedings with the Shelby County Criminal Court Clerk's office.
On March 24, 2014, Brown was arrested and charged with contempt of juvenile court after challenging a magistrate during court proceedings.
As of right now, there is a hearing scheduled in criminal court for 11 a.m. on May 2.
But Brown's attorneys say the criminal court should not hear any part of this case until after his appeal is ruled upon.
