AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- There's a new development in Mobility Inc.'s case against the City of Augusta.
Federal Court Judge Randy Hall has stayed the lawsuit and is forcing the two parties to try and mediate before they can proceed.
This news comes on the heel of City Administrator Fred Russell's recommendation of having McDonald Transit Services to come in and run the city's bus service.
The 17-page lawsuit claims that Augusta commissioners did not follow the Georgia Open Meetings Act because they first discussed terminating the current contract in a closed-door meeting.
Mobility asked the judge to reinstate its current contract and that the city be required to pay for all of its legal fees.
