Attorneys Petition Contempt of Court
The Singing River pension battle continues to play out. In a petition filed today, attorneys for retirees suing over their lost pensions say the whole case is “more akin to a John Grisham novel than a typical case.”
Today, attorneys Earl Denham and Harvey Barton filed a petition with the Supreme Court asking that Judge L. Breland Hilburn, overseeing the Chancery Court case, be cited for contempt of court. Also saying there’s a broad and wide-ranging conspiracy, they are asking the court to consider the case involves fraud to the tune of $150 million. This is concerning a year and a half legal battle over lost pensions in which employees continued paying their portion of retirement contributions, not knowing that the health system was no longer paying its portion.
