OCEAN SPRINGS — The Mississippi Supreme Court will referee a dispute between the city of Ocean Springs and a mental health clinic that wants to locate in the coastal city.
The Supreme Court has scheduled oral arguments in the case for Sept. 16 in Jackson.
Jackson County Circuit Judge Robert Krebs ruled last December that the city erred in denying a use permit to the Psycamore mental health clinic.
The case is among dozens before the Mississippi court in its September-October term.
In 2011, Ocean Springs aldermen voted 5-1 to deny a permit to Psycamore, which wanted to open a clinic in an area zoned commercial.
In his ruling, Krebs said much of the argument by the city and local residents who opposed the clinic was “more speculation than fact.”
