Scruggs opponent: how about giving that bribe money to me?



William Roberts Wilson, who was done out of his share of asbestos fees by Dickie Scruggs and lost the ensuing litigation (federal prosecutors say) because Scruggs's agents had reached the judge, says the bribe money Scruggs paid should be considered his rightful property and refunded. Former Mississippi tort luminary Joey Langston, who says he was gypped himself of his proper share of the payoffs in the Scruggs II (DeLaughter/Peters) bribery case, is backing Wilson up.
