Without addressing whether Mississippi should join the multi-state lawsuit, I felt it necessary to address your comment that the AG is the client of the governor. That is a little simplistic. The AG represents the government, not the governor per se. Their powers and responsibilties are more broad.

Consider the AG's ability/duty to prosecute the governor (something just avoided in South Carolina). While private attorneys don't get to choose not to prosecute cases on behalf of their clients just because they think the case may be unsuccessful, private attorneys could certainly never prosecute their clients while simultaneously representing them.
