Zach Scruggs has filed a very aggressive and pointed reply to the government’s response to his effort to undo his guilty plea. It includes as exhibits a substantial part of the email thread in which Zach Scruggs made the “brief on a napkin” remark, to demonstrate that what Zach was saying was that with Judge DeLaughter, they were going to get understanding and not hostility or hatred to Dick Scruggs. It also includes as an exhibit the email that sent to Balducci a transcript of a voir dire as a part of the cover for paying him $40,000; the point of that exhibit is to show that the email that was predicate to a wire fraud charge was within the state of Mississippi.
