I thought the writing in this L.A. Times story on Jack Denton was pretty decent, although it’s written in a breathless heroic tone that makes it sound like a piece in a continuing series that includes the tales of Hercules and the adventures of Horatio Hornblower. What’s the word I’m looking for? Sycophantic? Perhaps. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a fun story to read. Denton, you may recall, along with William Walker, was the attorney for the Broussards in Broussard v. State Farm, a case I have discussed at great length on this blog. Still, all in all, a fascinating look at a key lawyer in the Katrina cases and the son of a Mississippi legal legend. Anyway, it’s about time some plaintiff’s lawyer got some press besides Dickie Scruggs.
