COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - Court hearings have been delayed for the lawsuits that four elected officials filed against the city of Columbus.

Sheriff John Darr, Superior Court Clerk Linda Pierce, Marshal Greg Countryman and Municipal Court Clerk Vivian Creighton Bishop are suing the city, claiming that the amount of money budgeted for their offices is insufficient for them to carry out their duties.

The Ledger-Enquirer (https://bit.ly/1AOZYLZ ) reports the cases were supposed to be heard Monday, but the hearings were delayed at the plaintiffs’ request to allow them more time to compile information.

The hearing for the suit by Countryman and Bishop is now set for Jan. 14, and the hearing for the suit by Darr and Pierce is scheduled for Jan. 15.
