July 28—Jackson County Supervisor John McKay has been granted a reprieve from giving pre-trial testimony in a Chancery Court lawsuit filed against Singing River Health System.

McKay was scheduled to be questioned under oath this morning by attorneys for Singing River retirees who are suing the health system over their underfunded pension. But Special Master Britt Singletary filed an order Monday indefinitely postponing the testimony.

Ocean Springs attorney Billy Guice, hired by Jackson County to examine SRHS finances, filed the motion to delay McKay’s testimony until after the Aug. 4 party primaries and to limit the questions McKay can be asked.

McKay faces two opponents in the Republican primary.

Singletary’s order postpones the testimony. Singletary has taken under advisement Guice’s request that McKay should not have to respond at all to the subpoena to testify, along with the request to limit his testimony should he have to give it.
