Scruggs trial ties together a complex web of cases

If you want a quick explanation of the ins and outs of the legal situations involving Oxford mega-lawyer Richard “Dickie” Scruggs, here’s an explainer.

Friday, Scruggs and lawyer colleague Sidney Backstrom of Oxford pleaded guilty to one county of conspiring to bribe Circuit Judge Henry L. Lackey for a favorable ruling on a lawsuit over Hurricane Katrina insurance-case legal fees.

But that’s just part of a story maze that covers at least parts of four other cases and several officials who either have been indicted or implicated, although they haven’t been charged with any crimes.
