JACKSON, Miss. (Legal Newsline)-Disgraced plaintiffs’ attorney Richard “Dickie” Scruggs and his son want a federal judge to prevent their sworn testimony in a Hurricane Katrina lawsuit from being released.

The two men, who have been sentenced to federal prison for their part in a judicial bribery scheme, argue if their testimony is released their “presumption of innocence” could be compromised were they face criminal charges in the future.
