SRHS hearing back on Chancery Court docket

JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Defense attorneys tell WLOX News the hearing for Singing River Health System's pension plan is back on Chancery Court Judge Neil Harris' docket for Friday. This comes after SRHS attorneys filed a motion Thursday to move the hearing regarding the temporary restraining order to Federal Court.

The restraining order was issued in connection with Cynthia Almond's lawsuit against the health system concerning its pension plan.

One of Almond's attorneys, Earl Denham, tells us another attorney argued that it was improperly moved to Federal Court. That other attorney, Jim Reeves, confirmed the move back to Chancery Court.

Health System attorneys had said in their motion argued this case falls under federal law and should be addressed in Federal Court.

But, as of now, the hearing is currently on Friday's docket for Chancery Judge Harris.

Doug Walker will have the latest developments tonight on WLOX News at 6.
