Judge tosses Hood Katrina-insurance suit



A county judge ruled Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood never had standing to file the action (YallPolitics, O'Brien/LegalNewsLine, NMC @ Folo, ruling in PDF form). Separately, large numbers of private civil actions against insurers, including a high-profile batch filed by now-disgraced Dickie Scruggs, have quietly settled in recent months [Sun-Herald, Lotus @ Folo ("this may have been the easiest money Provost Umphrey ever made. But I'll wager that some local folks have entirely had it with lawyers.")]
