Dos de Scruggs

Holbrook Mohr writes an excellent recap of Scruggs II for the Associated Press (hattip folo). The new characters, cast for this performance by Joey Langston, include former Hinds County District Attorney Ed Peters and Hinds Circuit Judge Bobby DeLaughter. Returning from the previous franchise will once again be Dickie Scruggs, former Mississippi Auditor Steve Patterson and New Albany attorney Timothy Balducci.

Balducci and Patterson have been cooperating with federal investigators and await sentencing.

A lot of people tracked down interesting connections between this gang and elected officials in the first Scruggs case.  It will be interesting to see who else has political or financial ties to Balducci and Patterson and the others that comes out this time around.
