Rent Money Lawsuit Settlement Discussion

The City of Biloxi is in discussions with the secretary of state’s office to settle the lawsuit concerning rent money from the Golden Nugget.
About a month ago, Biloxi attorneys were in court trying to recover about $1.2 million owed after the city’s share of rent from the Golden Nugget Casino was inadvertently swept into the state’s general fund.
City of Biloxi Attorney Gerald Blessey says today the city received a check from the secretary of state for about $873,000. He says an agreement has not been finalized, but he is happy to see cooperation from Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann and his office.
The city is set to receive another check for $600,000 in January.
