      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)

                    Patterson admits Peters was hired to influence DeLaughter

                    After the break for lunch at 11:45 p.m., former state auditor Stephen Patterson took the stand. He recounted that it was his idea to pay retired Hinds County prosecutor Ed Peters $50,000 to influence his long-time friend, Judge DeLaughter. Patterson said Scruggs was never a part of any meetings he had with Peters and his attorney Joey Langston or Tim Balducci, Langston’s then-law partner. Patterson said he felt the call to Sen. Trent Lott by Scruggs was unnecessary. “Why buy the cow when you have the milk?” he stated in court. “Everyone knew (DeLaughter) wanted a federal judge seat already.”
                    Ed Peters was called as a witness for Scruggs, however, due to his advanced age and hearing loss, both sides agreed to allow his previous FBI testimony and grand jury testimony be allowed to be submitted to the court.
                    Langston is expected to take the stand when court convenes at 9 a.m. Tuesday. (March 26, 2012)
