Balducci: Scruggs in jail because of what he did

During a heated cross examination of Timothy Balducci by Scruggs’ attorney Edward “Chip” Robertson. Balducci said everyone involved in the Wilson v. Scruggs lawsuit on Scruggs’ team knew exactly what they were doing when they hired Ed Peters to be on their side and to dangle a federal judgeship in front of Judge DeLaughter and that was to get DeLaughter to rule in Scruggs’ favor. Robertson accused Balducci of getting his facts wrong when he failed to remember certain dates. Balducci said the events were six years ago and that he’s tried to put the past behind him.
Earlier in the day, former attorney and who was the lead attorney defending Scruggs in the Wilson v. Scruggs lawsuit took the stand as well as another part pf the Scruggs’ legal team, Stephen Funderburg. The day ended at about 3 p.m. Judge Glen Davidson is giving both sides 14 days to submit closing arguments in written form and any related briefs. Davidson will make a ruling sometime afterward.  (March 27, 2012)
