Courthouse speculation from Oxford today continues to focus on whether Langston was indicted by a sitting grand jury earlier this week and may be cooperating with the government. Farese was seen to be called out of a state court matter earlier in the week just a block away from the federal courthouse to come to Langston’s aide. It’s not believed prosecutors are interested in Langston about their case against
Scruggs and four others, accused Nov. 28 of trying to bribe a judge for a favorable ruling in a $26.5 million Katrina legal fees lawsuit. But that’s anything but a certainty at this stage.
It’s widely believed the answers to those questions will come within days as sealed documents are made public.
