HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The federal case that was set to begin August 2nd for a Hub City man suing the city for alleged police abuse has been continued indefinitely.

Jordan Chase Borgognoni, 28, was found dead in a car at 380 Archie Smith Road in Forrest County on Thursday, which now causes the trial to be continued until a plaintiff in the case can be substituted.

According to a court order by District Judge Keith Starrett:

“This case has been previously set for trial to begin August, 2, 2016. When the parties related to the Court the passing of Mr. Borgognoni, a discussion ensued regarding the matters necessary to return the case to posture ready for trial. The parties agreed that a continuance was necessary and the Court concurred.”

Borgognoni was suing the city, The Hattiesburg Police Department and several other individuals after an incident on July 23, 2012 left him with a broken spine. No date has been set at this time, and a plaintiff has been ordered to be named within 30 days.
