Hosemann’s motion to dismiss Murphy family lawsuit denied

The Murphy family’s legal battle over the future the marina site in Bay St. Louis will continue now that Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann’s motion to dismiss has been denied.

Hancock County Circuit Judge Lisa P. Dodson ruled Friday the Secretary of State did not properly support the motion to dismiss the Murphys’ case with documentation.

With no survey map, the state could not maintain its argument and the court could not determine the property in dispute, she said.
