Court grants Gulfport’s request to drop annexation lawsuit
Published: July 15,2014
GULFPORT — The Mississippi Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal of an annexation lawsuit between the cities of Gulfport and Biloxi over a contested piece of land along the Mississippi Highway 605 corridor.
The court granted Gulfport’s motion yesterday.
Biloxi and Gulfport have been battling over the same territory since 2009. Both cities are located in Harrison County, which has sided with Biloxi in the case.
Both parties sought to have the case dismissed.
The cities had agreed in April to drop the annexation case.
Officials say the cities agreed to settle differences over existing annexation cases and have no further annexation cases until at least June 2017, when the current terms of office expire.
