Murphy family wins $644K judgment in Bay harbor suit

A Hancock County jury on Monday awarded brothers Ray, Ken, and Audie Murphy $644,000 after it found the secretary of state’s office took their Beach Blvd property without authorization.

The city of Bay St. Louis, which was a co-defendant in the case, was found not liable.

“My clients are very pleased with the jury’s decision,” Murphy attorney Paul Scott said Tuesday. “This lawsuit was not about the harbor. It was about taking someone’s property without compensation. We have been saying all along that the Murphys owned this property.”
