More on Indictment of Dickie Scruggs, Tobacco Settlement Lawyer

Overlawyered has more coverage of the indictment of Dickie Scruggs, the rich trial lawyer who helped bring about the tobacco Master Settlement Agreement that settled lawsuits by 46 states. I earlier discussed how the settlement made undeserving trial lawyers obscenely wealthy, and how it ripped off consumers -- in whose name many of the lawsuits leading to the tobacco settlement were brought -- here. Even the American Bar Association's publication has taken a dim view of the settlement, as you can see here.
