The circuit court judge hearing the lawsuit involving Hancock Amendment refunds is moving closer to a decision. The plaintiffs and the state say a decision could come within a few weeks. There’s a lot of optimism on the part of those who launched the legal action that the judge will rule in their favor and order millions of dollars in refunds. But Assistant attorney general Robert Presson says even if the judge rules against the state, refunds are unlikely. Presson says an order for the state to change the way it handles tax calculations would be remedy enough, if the judge rules against the state.
