Michael K. Randolph, a presiding justice on the Mississippi Supreme Court, is scheduled to undergo open heart surgery later this month, the court said today.

Randolph, 69, recently experienced trouble breathing and the surgery will repair two leaking heart valves; he previously underwent triple bypass surgery in 2006.

Randolph is expected to return to his duties in mid-January after recovering at his home in Hattiesburg.
