STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Current Starkville Mayor Lynn Spruill will remain the city's leader following a lengthy appeal from an election competitor.

In a packed Circuit Court Friday morning, the final ruling was in favor of Spruill over Johnny Moore.

Last year, Spruill was elected mayor of the city, but Moore challenged the results. The year-long contest involved the topic of possible wrongdoing or fraud by election commissioners.

According to the Starkville Daily News, presiding Judge Barry Ford stated there was no wrongdoing or fraud by the commissioners.
