The Mississippi State Bar, as I’ve mentioned, has responded to Dickie Scruggs’ Motion to Stick Around with this Response, which in essence says Scruggs’ guilty plea acknowledges in writing that he is, in fact, guilty of the crime to which he pleaded, and therefore this makes him unfit to be a lawyer in Mississippi. The date on the document is April 1, although it would have been more fitting if Scruggs’ opposition to disbarment had itself been filed on April Fool’s Day. Here also is a copy of the Bar’s motion to indefinitely suspend Scruggs and strike him from the rolls of Mississippi lawyers, on the chance that the state Supreme Court buys Scruggs’ motion. Why Scruggs is indulging in this effort to stave off the inevitable is a question I don’t know the answer to.
