Government’s transcripts may be fatal for Scruggs

The fruits of the federal government’s disputed wiretaps apparently include indicted trial lawyer Richard “Dickie” Scruggs discussing an amount of money to be paid to a state judge.

In responding to Scruggs’ motion to exclude any evidence obtained through wiretaps, federal prosecutors released their transcripts (they can be viewed here and here) from conversations between Timothy Balducci, who has pleaded guilty to the alleged scheme and was cooperating with investigators, and the three remaining co-defendants.
