Hearing set in Allman lawsuit against filmmakers

Hearing set in Allman lawsuit against filmmakers

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Attorneys for Gregg Allman plan to make their first court appearance in a Savannah lawsuit against producers of a movie based on the Allman Brothers Band singer's life story.

A Chatham County Superior Court judge scheduled a hearing Monday afternoon to hear motions in the case. Allman filed suit last month to stop Unclaimed Freight Productions from resuming work on the film "Midnight Rider" after a freight train plowed into the movie's crew Feb. 20. A camera assistant was killed and six workers were injured. Producers suspended work on the movie indefinitely.

Mercer Bears pep up Hubbard Elementary

On Friday, April 25, five Mercer Bears' basketball players visited Hubbard Elementary. During the pep rally, the students cheered about ways to get ready for the CRCT. The students were reminded to go to bed early and eat a good breakfast to be prepared for testing.

The Mercer Bears impressed students with their basketball skills and told students what areas they have chosen as their majors. The Hubbard Tigers greatly appreciate the time that the Mercer Men's Basketball team spent with us.
