Today in the Wall Street Journal Law Blog, they cover convicted tort baron Bill Lerach’s efforts to take a European vacation while on probation. He has made some comments in a print interview along the lines of the Dickie Scruggs/Paul Minor camps about his guilt.
“I’m not ashamed of myself in any way,” Lerach said in the interview. He said there was “no question this was a politically motivated prosecution,” but also added,”You can be targeted and be guilty. They’re not mutually inconsistent.”
Oh, by the way, Lerach pleaded guilty.
As we said in Kings of Tort, their behavior was a way of life that they will defend at all costs.
. . . At all costs.
