SOUTHAVEN, MS (WMC) -

A former Southaven mayor lost the appeal of his civil case against the city.

Greg Davis was the mayor of Southaven from 1997-2013. In June, 2014, Davis was found guilty of embezzling funds and defrauding the City of Southaven.

Davis remains out of jail on an appellate bond despite being found guilty and sentenced to jail time in that criminal case. 

Tuesday's development concerns Davis' civil case--not his criminal case.

Hinds Chancery Court ruled against Davis in his appeal of the civil case. The original case ruled Davis had to pay back Southaven $73,000 plus court costs.

Davis said he plans to continue the appeals process. He said he plans to take his case to the Supreme Court.
