Slander Suit Delayed

By  | 

No decision was issued Monday in Lauderdale County court in a $2 million slander suit filed against a local county supervisor.

Steve Goodman of Cuba Timber Company contends he was slandered by statements allegedly made by district 5 supervisor Ray Boswell.

Apparently, the decision hinges on whether or not the timber company was licensed to operate in Mississippi at the time of Boswell's statements.

The case was recessed Monday afternoon, pending verification by a state office. It's possible Goodman might take his case to a different court.
