Scruggs Nation, Day 13: phase II

As you know, Joey Langston, an associate of both Scruggs and Tim Balducci, not to mention a figure closely linked to Mississippi AG Jim Hood, had his offices searched by the FBI yesterday. What they were looking for or what they found, if anything, I don’t know. The fact that Langston withdrew from the public eye and pulled back from court appearances on behalf of Scruggs last week suggests that Langston knew some trouble was brewing for him. As a point of interest, you can look back at the documents I posted yesterday in Scruggs Nation, Day 12, and see that both Joey Langston and Tim Balducci are listed as among the counsel for Dickie Scruggs in the Luckey v. Scruggs lawsuit. By saying this, I don’t mean to suggest this case furnishes any of the motivation for the FBI search — I don’t know. The case is merely one of a number of threads that tie Langston, Balducci and Scruggs. There are others, and these will be spoken of here in due time.
