If SRHS can’t pay retirees, attorneys argue Jackson County taxpayers should

Attorneys for Singing River Health System retirees hope the full 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will decide whether a court-approved settlement should stand regarding SRHS’s failed pension plan. The retirees object to a settlement provision, approved by a three-judge panel of the appeals court, that would release Jackson County from further liability should SRHS fail to make pension payments outlined in the settlement.

Attorneys disagree on SRHS pension resolution

Attorney Billy Guice, representing Jackson County in the SRHS pension issue, reminds those at the supervisors' meeting on Monday, October 19, 2015, that the mediation is ongoing and confidential.
