Zach Scruggs’s bar complaint dismissed

Will this have an impact on Zach Scruggs’s effort to set aside his plea? Indirectly, yes: The bar has effectively said there is nothing here to complain about, which has a huge psychological impact on the ineffectiveness argument Zach Scruggs is making. I can already imagine a footnote in an opinion noting– in passing, of course– the resolution of the bar complaint.
