Judge sends Expedia case back to Superior Court

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - "Like a bad penny, this case keeps turning up!" Strong words from federal court Judge Hugh Lawson today as there are new developments in the case between the city of Columbus and Expedia.

Judge Lawson issued an order late Tuesday afternoon that sends the case back to superior court.  Expedia recently had it moved to federal court for the third time, but Judge Lawson granted Columbus' motion to move the case back to superior court. 

No trial date has been set.

The case had previously been handled by recently, retired Judge Doug Pullen, so another will have to be assigned to it.  Columbus sued Expedia in 2006 over the remittance of hotel/motel taxes.
