 Zach Scruggs loses appeals before US Supreme Court
JACKSON -- The U.S. Supreme Court has denied an appeal from Zach Scruggs, who was implicated as having knowledge of a judicial corruption scheme that toppled his father, plaintiffs' lawyer Richard "Dickie" Scruggs.
The court without comment Tuesday declined Scruggs' request to hear his appeal.
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans upheld Zach Scruggs' conviction in October.

Toxic Justice comment posted:
Unlike Zach Scruggs, Paul Minor was never disbarred after he was convicted in federal court of bribing Judge John Whitfield and Judge Wes Teel.

Minor was my attorney for fifteen years and explained to me in Judge John Whitfield's courtroom how my judge had been bribed.   Minor then bribed Judge Whitfield to dismiss my case when he discovered I had secretly audio taped him and had turned the taped evidence over to the FBI.

So- why is Paul Minor allowed to practice law in Louisiana and Mississippi and Zach Scruggs is not?
See recent Sun Herald news story about Paul Minor's release from prison. Lawyers who bribe judges and commit fraud should stay in jail, not earn millions while in prison. How much as Zach Scruggs earned while in prison? These criminals know where all the bodies are buried. Until all the "bodies" are found and exposed, not one of these criminals should be free.
