Attorney for SRHS retirees plans to take pension case to U.S. Supreme Court

JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) – Attorney Harvey Barton wants the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the case of Singing River Hospital’s failed pension plan. Barton said Tuesday he plans to file an appeal within the next 30 days. Barton represents 250 SRHS retirees who object to the $55 million settlement negotiated with SRHS and approved by a federal judge in 2016.

“We want our people paid what they were promised,” Barton said.
