Hattiesburg attorney settles lawsuit with county
Published: March 16,2011
HATTIESBURG — Federal court records show a Hattiesburg attorney has settled his lawsuit against Pearl River County over his claims his arrest on a bribery complaint in 2009 was in retaliation for past disputes with the local sheriff.
Details of the settlement were not made public. A federal judge signed an order Feb. 17 dismissing the lawsuit.
Glenn L. White had sued the sheriff, three deputies and the county in 2010.
White had been arrested in 2009 for allegedly bribing a county jail inmate to influence testimony related to the investigation of a Picayune bonding company. The attorney general’s office later dropped the charges.
