(WMC) – Shelby County Commissioner Henri Brooks returns to Chancery Court to fight claims she does not live in the district she represents and to ultimately save her seat on the commission.

Brooks filed a lawsuit last week against the Shelby County Commission and the Shelby County government after an investigation found she did not live in District 2.

She argues the Shelby County attorney doesn't have the authority to remove her from office.

Chancellor Kenny Armstrong is hearing the case and suggested the county commission hold a public hearing on the issue.

On Tuesday, Armstrong said "Somebody has to make that determination and I don't think it's (Shelby County Attorney) Mrs. (Marcy) Ingram. I think it's an elected body that makes that determination."

Armstrong gave the county two days to respond to that suggestion. We could hear that response on Thursday and find out Brooks' next step. Her hearing is schedule for 1 p.m.

WMC Action News 5's Nick Kenney will be there and will have the outcome tonight on WMC Action News 5 at 5.
