According to this Anita Lee story on the website of the Sun Herald, the FBI today is searching the law offices of attorney Dickie Scruggs. An excerpt:
The FBI in Jackson has verified that the agency is executing a search warrant today at the law offices of Richard "Dickie" Scruggs in Oxford.
The FBI said the warrant was issued "in furtherance of an ongoing investigation."
No further information has been released. When contacted at the law office, Scruggs’ son, Zach Scruggs, said he could not comment and would have to return the Sun Herald’s telephone call later.
As the story says, it’s not clear what the FBI is looking for or what case the search warrant is in connection with. Trent Lott resigning? Dickie Scruggs’ offices being searched? What on Earth is going on here, is Santa wearing a State Farm T-shirt under his red suit?
