JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear the appeal of a violation of constitutional rights case involving the City of Jackson, giving the city a legal victory.

The case was filed in June of 2012 by plaintiffs Donald Hewitt and Advanced Technology Building Solutions. Hewitt won a $600,000 judgment in a federal jury trial after the charges involving Advanced Technology Building solutions were dismissed.

The company appealed, but the United States Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal from the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.
