SUPREME COURT OF ALABAMA OCTOBER TERM, 2015-2016 ____________________ 1141134 ____________________ Ex parte Jami L. McLendon PETITION FOR WRIT OF CERTIORARI TO THE COURT OF CIVIL APPEALS (In re: Jami L. McLendon v. John David Mills, Jr.) (Crenshaw Circuit Court, DR-12-7.03; Court of Civil Appeals, 2140389) BOLIN, Justice. WRIT QUASHED. NO OPINION. 1141134 Moore, C.J., and Main and Bryan, JJ., concur. Murdock, J., concurs specially. 2 1141134 MURDOCK, Justice (concurring specially). I concur in quashing the writ in this case. I write separately to note that I would be open, in an appropriate case, to reexamining the issue whether the standard set out in Ex parte McLendon, 455 So. 2d 863 (Ala. 1984), rather than the standard set out in Ex parte Couch, 521 So. 2d 987 (Ala. 1988), should be applied to a petition to modify custody where joint physical custody has been maintained for a meaningful period pursuant to a prior court order. 3
