Judge Senter disqualifies Katrina lawyers, Rigsby sisters



A fairly spectacular rebuke to the lawyers formerly allied with Dickie Scruggs in the hurricane litigation, as well as to the now-disgraced Scruggs himself: the judge has disqualified both the lawyers and the Rigsby sisters from participating in Katrina claims in the Southern District of Mississippi because of the gross conflicts of interest created when the (former) Scruggs Katrina Group hired the sisters as consultants despite their status as fact witnesses. Tons of coverage from David Rossmiller, from NMC/Folo, and at YallPolitics here, here, and here. Plus: more from David Rossmiller.
