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:
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.
