PASCAGOULA -- Attorneys representing some of the retirees in the Singing River Health System case and those with SRHS filed a settlement in U.S. District Court late Sunday night.

It stipulates that Chancery Court would oversee the settlement.

It appears that Jackson County, represented by attorney Billy Guice, has signed off on the settlement.

Also signing the document are attorneys representing SRHS and those representing former SRHS CEO Chris Anderson, former SRHS attorney Stephanie Barnes Taylor, former SRHS CFO Mike Crews and former SRHS Trustee Mike Tolleson.

There is another group of retirees, the majority in the case, that do not hold with a settlement. Chancery court Judge Breland Hilburn severed their case from about a dozen retirees involved in the settlement who are represented by attorneys Jim Reeves and Cal Mayo.

Jackson County Supervisors will meet this morning with two new supervisors elected in the midst of the SRHS scandal.

SRHS retirees plan to attend the Monday morning supervisors meeting hoping to get an update on where the county stands.
