DIAMONDHEAD — A Mississippi Supreme Court decision likely ends the court battle over Diamondhead’s incorporation.
Yesterday, the court denied a petition to rehear the incorporation, which was filed by attorneys for John Fletcher and others against the plan.
They contended the court was incorrect when it ruled proper notice was given because the hearing was postponed without properly informing the public of the new date.
Thursday’s ruling is the latest in a five-year legal battle to make the area of about 9,500 residents a city.
Prospective Mayor Chuck Ingraham tells The Sun Herald the ruling paves the way for Diamondhead to become a city, but the court will have to issue an order mandating their decision and the state will have to issue a charter.
