COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

There is a new development in the ongoing legal saga involving elected officials in Columbus. 

The Georgia Supreme Court has decided to transfer the plaintiffs’ case to the Court of Appeals. 

Last month, attorneys for Marshall Greg Countryman and Municipal Court Clerk Vivian Bishop said the state's high court was the wrong place to hear the arguments. 

They are suing city officials or what they call "inadequate" budget cuts to their departments. 

Mayor Teresa Tomlinson says it doesn't matter to the city which court dismisses the plaintiffs’ few remaining claims.
