Langston called to testify in Zack Scruggs hearing

Langston’s appearance was called by senior U.S. District Judge Neal Biggers and is scheduled for 1 p.m.

Scruggs, 36, of Oxford contends – for this hearing – that prosecutor Robert Norman should be disqualified from participation in the government’s legal team.

He claims Norman knew about false testimony against him, which prejudiced the court against him.

Monday’s hearing is Round One in a two-round Northern District fight over Scruggs’ 2010 motion asking the court to vacate his 2008 sentence and conviction in a guilty plea to knowing about but not reporting that a colleague spoke illegally to Circuit Judge Henry Lackey, who presided over a legal-fees lawsuit against Scruggs and others.
