Judge issues stay allowing Southaven mayor to get paycheck this week

Southaven Mayor Greg Davis will get his paycheck Friday after a Hinds County Chancery Court judge issued a stay Thursday preventing Mississippi Auditor Stacey Pickering from seizing Davis’ salary — for now — to recover disputed debt.

Davis, through attorneys Steve Farese and Michael Heilman, sought a temporary restraining order to stop Pickering from garnishing the mayor’s city-issued $3,700 biweekly paycheck beginning this week.
