JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Another twist in the Singing River Health System pension plan saga. Attorneys for retiree Cynthia Almond have asked Judge Breland Hilburn to recuse himself from the case.

According to court documents, the impartiality of the judge has come into question. Hilburn was appointed to oversee the lawsuit after Judge Neil Harris recused himself.

Judge Jaye Bradley was the original judge assigned to oversee the matter, but she recused herself on Dec. 8, 2014.

Six SRHS lawsuits were then taken over by Harris until the Mississippi Supreme Court ordered him of the case. The Supreme Court then tapped Hilburn to preside over the proceedings.

According to documents, Almond’s attorneys question Hilburn’s experience in Chancery Court and his ability to hear the case in a timely manner.
