JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) –

Some Mississippi investors are demanding their money back from the federal government, and now, they’ve filed a lawsuit to get it.

“Put yourself in my shoes. If you’d lost the money I’ve lost, would that hurt you?” Plaintiff Betty Kilgore asked.

Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann is supporting the lawsuit, filed by attorney Don Barrett on behalf of Kilgore and two other Mississippi investors.
