Miss. SC to hear AG’s price-gouging appeal

JACKSON, Miss. (Legal Newsline) — The Mississippi Supreme Court has decided it will take up the state Attorney General Office’s appeal of a judge’s ruling that Mississippi’s price-gouging law is “unconstitutionally vague,” according to The Associated Press.

Chancellor J. Max Kilpatrick rejected in 2008 Attorney General Jim Hood’s lawsuit accusing an in-state oil company of overcharging for fuel following Hurricane Katrina.

The suit accused Louisville-based Fair Oil Co., along with another company, of gouging customers after the 2005 storm.
