Night club files restraining order against Hattiesburg mayor

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Forrest County Chancery Court judge has issued a restraining order allowing a night club to re-open tonight (Friday). 

Judge Sebe Dale signed the order Friday morning preventing Mayor Johnny DuPree from carrying out his instructions to close the club.  

Remington's Hunt Club was the scene of a Sunday-morning shooting that left three University of Southern Mississippi football players injured.

The court ruled Mayor DuPree did not give club owners prior notice of the action or provide an opportunity to be heard. The order says the mayor had no authority to suspend the license and to close it was an unlawful act. The court also said the business will suffer immediate and irreparable financial injury. 

The judge has ordered the club to remain open until a hearing can be held December 8.

Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
