STEVENSON, Ala Jim Davis of Stevenson believes the justices are waiting on him to die so they won't have to rule.
The 75-year-old Davis says he's not going to accept any deal with the city, however.
Davis and the town of Stevenson have been in court since he buried his wife Patsy in his front yard after her death in 2009.
The city contends it's illegal to have a grave on a residential lot.
Davis has lost court challenges, and the Alabama Supreme Court has yet to say whether it will hear the case.
