State Auditor Stacey Pickering released the following statement regarding today’s ruling to recess the State of Mississippi vs. Greg Davis:

“Our office is pleased with our efforts in the Hinds County Chancery Court to prove our case against Greg Davis. We are looking forward to the completion of the civil action at a later date. I appreciate the hard work of Special Assistant Attorney General Melissa Patterson. While the State Auditor’s Office cannot discuss the evidence presented, we believe that the facts show the State’s case clearly. I am confident that we will be successful in protecting the taxpayers of Southaven and the State of Mississippi.”
