HATTIESBURG — A jury trial is now set for Dave Ware’s challenge of the June 4 Hattiesburg mayoral election.
The Hattiesburg American reports specially appointed judge William F. Coleman will preside over the case at 10:30 a.m. July 23 at the Forrest County Courthouse.
Additionally, Coleman also set a conference date for 11 a.m. July 8 for both the Ware lawyers and the lawyers of fellow mayoral candidate Nathan Jordan.
Both Ware and Jordan filed cases in Forrest County Circuit Court alleging irregularities in the mayoral election that saw incumbent Mayor Johnny DuPree defeat Ware by 37 votes.
DuPree will be sworn in for his fourth term on Monday.
