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.

    "He had skills that not everybody possesses," said former Wayne County head baseball coach Michael Gavin. "And the biggest thing was his work ethic. I never had a kid that would work as hard as he do." Gavin saw the potential in Dylan Snypes back when he donned a War Eagle uniform.
