MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Former Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton claimed victory Tuesday at a child support hearing, walking out with the mother of his youngest child owing him money.

Claudine Marsh recently sued for more child support from Herenton, but a judge ruled Tuesday that Herenton was already paying too much.  

"I think it simply confirms what we've said an he's reiterated, that he is doing everything in his power that the court requires of him to satisfy his court-ordered obligations," said Herenton's attorney, Mitch Moskovitz. "I certainly think the ruling today confirms that.

The judge determined Marsh must credit Herenton almost $12,000 make up for the overpayments.

The judge also dismissed all contempt complaints against Herenton.
