Scruggs Nation, March 7: the Wilson case lives

Recall that this is the case in which Scruggs’ former partner in asbestos lawsuits sued Scruggs over attorney fees he said Scruggs owed him but never paid. In that case, Wilson v. Scruggs, Judge Bobby DeLaughter presided, and Joey Langston, who was counsel for Scruggs near the end of the long case along with Tim Balducci, has pleaded guilty to conspiring to bribe DeLaughter with the offer of a federal judgeship. Balducci, in a February 20 hearing in USA v. Scruggs, testified that he, Scruggs and Langston were in on the bribery plot.
