The other Scruggs Katrina scandal



The bribery charges stemming from the fee dispute have been getting 99 percent of the attention, but as David Rossmiller relates (and earlier here), there are some major developments as well in the thicket of misconduct charges arising from Scruggs Katrina Group's remarkably uninhibited tactics in its litigation against State Farm. One highlight: a smoking-gunnish note by an engineer cooperating with SKG "recount[ing] an apparent conversation between Special Assistant Attorney General Courtney Schloemer and an SKG attorney: 'they agreed that a criminal conviction [if one could be obtained against State Farm] could help civil cases.'" Some further discussions here, here, here, and here.

Also, the Wall Street Journal's free OpinionJournal.com site has now posted a no-subscription-needed link to my Saturday op-ed on the Scruggs indictments. It can be found here.
