Via Rossmiller: On Thursday, Jan. 17, the Federalist Society is holding a lunchtime panel discussion (PDF) entitled: "Is the Mississippi Bar Doing Enough To Combat Corruption and To Protect the Honor and Integrity of the Profession?" Timing could scarcely be better as rumors are flying fast of potentially major developments in the Scruggs prosecution. And for those who are following one of the most curious threads in the Scruggs backstory -- the matter of P.L. Blake, who appears to have been steered as much as $50 million of the tobacco settlement for services that include clipping newspaper articles and having a sense of where the Mississippi legislature was going -- Tim Kalich has a piece in the McComb Enterprise-Journal sketching things out nicely.
