MS Supreme Court denies Palmertree appeal

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Mississippi Supreme Court has denied an appeal filed by Warren County Circuit Clerk Shelly Ashley-Palmertree, siding with the State Auditor.      

The three-member panel of justices agreed with a Hinds County Chancery Court ruling restricting Palmertree from using taxpayer money to pay her attorneys' fees.      

In March 2013, the Auditor's Office served a civil demand to Palmertree for more than 660-thousand dollars. The civil case resumes April 14th in Hinds County Chancery Court.
