Few fictional characters have captured the imagination of a city like the Crichton Leprechaun did Mobile’s, and its fame has continued to grow nationally and even internationally over the years.

In the Baldwin edition this week, a circuit court ruling could have huge implications for condo ownership. We break down the lawsuit and explain what it means not only for the litigants, but also the thousands of condo owners along the ‘Bama coastline.
Also this week in Lagniappe:
• The Senior Bowl announced last week that it’s played its final game in 70-year-old Ladd-Peebles Stadium and will be moving to USA’s new stadium for next year’s game. The move is not without criticism.
• A Clotilda exhibit has been announced that will bring a newly constructed building to Africatown to warehouse artifacts from the U.S.’s last slave ship.
• A bill introduced by Rep. Shane Stringer in the current legislative session seeks to make police body camera footage almost impossible for media and private citizens to see.
• The daughter of a man who was killed by Baldwin County Sheriff’s Deputies after a confrontation stemming from an eviction two years has filed suit against the department.
• Mobile County Sheriff Sam Cochran is leading a group that’s trying to change the necessity of the Mobile City Council obtaining a five-vote supermajority for most votes. The move is a direct response to three councilors blocking a referendum on annexation.
