Former Southaven Mayor headed back to Court

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Attorneys for former Southaven Mayor Greg Davis will argue before the state Court of Appeals on July 21 that a judgment that he repay $73,000 to the city for the alleged misuse of public funds should be thrown out.

In briefs filed with the court, Davis' attorney, Michael A. Heilman says Davis' charges on the city credit card were approved and paid by the board of aldermen. He said the aldermen never rescinded approval of these claims.

Davis was sued by State Auditor Stacey Pickering for allegedly misusing more than $170,000 in city funds for trips, expensive dinners and clothing. Davis repaid $96,000 but still owes $73,915, including interest and penalties.
