  • In the wake of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals’ long-awaited ruling in Noatex Corp. v. King Construction of Houston, LLC, Case No. 12-60385 (5th Cir. Oct. 10, 2013), which struck down Mississippi's now-repealed Stop-Notice statute as unconstitutional, the State legislature has revamped and expanded lien rights on construction projects.
