Special prosecutors file contempt charges against Dickie Scruggs
I don't know much about criminal procedure -- just what I learn watching Boston Legal, Law & Order and The Wire -- but this Associated Press story has got me wondering if Dickie Scruggs is going to be doing a perp walk. Here's a couple grafs so you can see what I mean:
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Special prosecutors charged prominent Mississippi attorney Richard F. Scruggs and his law firm with criminal contempt Tuesday in a Hurricane Katrina insurance dispute.
A motion to summon Scruggs and the Scruggs Law Firm was also filed Tuesday by the prosecutors, who requested that the court schedule an arraignment in the contempt of court case.
