Big developments in Greenville in a controversy with origins in Leflore County.

Our News Partners at The Taxpayers Channel report tonight that the discrimination trial between Dr. Preston Boles and Greenwood Leflore Hospital will not move ahead Monday as planned.

Federal District Judge Debra Brown late today announced in denying a motion made this morning, that the parties had settled the case.

The order from Judge Brown also says the trial is no longer necessary.

Boles had sued Greenwood Leflore after discovering he got paid significantly less than a white colleague.

The court had already denied the hospital's motion for summary judgement in the case.
