Biloxi joins lawsuit against Secretary of State over waterfront land

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) – The City of Biloxi finds itself in another dispute with Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann over whether waterfront land should be considered state-owned.

This case involves the site of the former Lady Luck Casino at Hwy. 90 near Oak St.

Hosemann wants the property to be declared public tidelands. If that request is granted by the courts, Biloxi officials say tidelands funds should be used to reimburse the city for future lost property taxes on the site.
