STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - A judge says he'll rule later this month on the Starkville mayoral election contest between Mayor Lynn Spruill and challenger Johnny Moore.

Our news partner, the Starkville Daily News, reports that special judge Barry Ford said that a final ruling on the election is expected July 20th.

Tuesday marks a full year since Spruill was sworn in to the city's highest office.

The judge, along with the election commissioners and legal counsels from both sides, will have an additional hearing the day before the ruling.
