Langston admits actions were wrong

Court began at 9 a.m. this morning with Steven H. Funderburg taking the stand. Funderburg and his partner Johnny Jones worked with Scruggs in the lawsuit Wilson v. Scruggs. At 10 a.m., former attorney Joey Langston, who was lead council in the Wilson v. Scruggs case, took the stand. Langston testified that it was wrong to ask former Hinds County Prosecutor Ed Peters to hold ex parte communications with DeLaughter and that by doing so, it gave Scruggs and him an advantage in the lawsuit. He will go back on the stand this afternoon at 1 p.m. (March 27, 2012)
