Hood discusses meeting with Balducci, Patterson

I know what he’s intending to say, but it sure didn’t come out right, did it? “If I knew they were getting paid that much.” I mean, a couple hundred K is all a job like that is worth, max! Right? That’s what it sounds like.

Hood’s quote also makes it sound as if the meeting took place in his office. The questioning on the stand by the State Farm lawyer mentioned above suggested the meeting took place in a restaurant in Jackson. Question: are we talking about the same meeting, or was there more than one?

Another thing — in the transcript of the State Farm v. Hood hearing, it’s like a game of dodge ball. Why is Hood now willing to talk about the meeting?
