Below is the Order from the Mississippi Supreme Court where Speaker Philip Gunn’s motion for interlocutory appeal was granted.

It appeared Rep. Jay Hughes (D) wanted the case to go back to Judge Kidd, but the Court has agreed with Gunn and will decide the merits of the case.

The Supreme Court is requesting the parties to brief the jurisdictional question of whether the Court has any business interfering in the internal rules and actions of a separate branch of government.
