HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) Residents of a community in Hattiesburg have filed a lawsuit against the city that alleges the community isn't getting its fair share of services.
The lawsuit alleges the Palmer's Crossing community of about 3,000 residents is not seeing its share of infrastructure improvements since being annexed more than 20 years ago.
The suit seeks to halt new construction and the issuance of bonds in the city.
Residents Nathan Jordan and Chester Johnson filed a complaint for injunctive and other equitable relief in Forrest County Circuit Court.
Jordan, a minister and member of the Palmer's Crossing Community Action Team, has qualified to run as a candidate for mayor of Hattiesburg.
He says Palmer's Crossing gets overlooked, but residents still pay their share of city taxes.
