VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Supreme Court has upheld a ruling in Warren County that most of Paw Paw Road is private.
The Vicksburg Post reports that Wednesday's decision could deal a blow to Warren County's chances of a favorable verdict in a related federal case involving two groups of landowners.
Warren County Chancellor Vicki Roach Barnes ruled in 2008 that 0.13 of a mile of the gravel path off Mississippi Highway 465 is public and the rest is private.
The road is the lone access to separate parcels of hunting property owned by Issaquena and Warren Counties Land Company LLC and Paw Paw Island Land Company.
