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.
