HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Attorney's representing a deceased Hub City man who alleged he was abused by two Hattiesburg police officers have responded to the city's request for a gag order. 

Attorneys representing the city want a judge to order Jordan Chase Borgognoni's attorneys to stop talking to the media.

The motion claims Borgognoni's attorneys made comments about the case to the media that could taint a potential jury pool.

Borgognoni's attorneys deny the claims, and filed a response to the gag order stating they haven't made any comments that could be considered a violation.

Borgognoni filed the lawsuit on September 19, 2013 claiming officers broke his back while arresting him the year before.

The trial was scheduled to start in early August, but was continued after Borgognoni was found dead in a truck.
