      FBI agent sues authors of Scruggs’ book

      An FBI agent in Oxford claims a former federal prosecutor and a political blogger made false statements against him in a book they wrote about the judicial bribery scandal involving former trial attorney Richard “Dickie” Scruggs.

      Oxford attorney Christi McCoy filed the suit on Dec. 2 in Lafayette County Circuit Court on behalf of her client, Philip Halbert “Hal” Neilson.

      The suit names authors Tom Dawson and Alan Lange and the publishing company, The Pediment Group, and claims in the book, “King of Torts,” Dawson, a retired U.S. assistant attorney, lied and made slanderous statements about Neilson in his book in retaliation for Neilson filing an official complaint against Dawson in 2001. (December 10, 2010, Page 2A)

Lackey was suppose to be a “roast and toast” event. While many of the speeches made by about 16 people about the Calhoun County judge caused a few chuckles — and even a few tears, it was Lackey himself who invoked rounds of hearty laughter as he lovingly roasted them in return.

        He announced his intent to retire at a Christmas party in 2009. His term will end Dec. 31.  About 300 people attended Lackey’s retirement party Thursday at the Oxford Conference Center. (November 5, 2010, Page 1A)
