Lawsuit over Mississippi governor’s budget cuts rejected

Hinds County Chancery Judge Patricia Wise ruled Friday, only two weeks after Rep. Bryant Clark of Pickens and Sen. John Horhn of Jackson had sued.

Her quick ruling came after lawyers for both sides agreed in a Wednesday hearing to allow Wise to rule on the merits of the case immediately.

The ruling could lead to an appeal to the state Supreme Court.
