The government's case against the defendants is hardly based on moral conduct. It looks as though the government set out to have a judge bribe a litigant before the court. Judge Lackey made himself available for special favors when he signed the "ore tenus" motion to seal the Jones Case file and placed the reopening of the file solely in the hands of Grady Tollison.
One has to wonder. Did the judge set out to bribe Dick Scruggs? Did he set out from the beginning of the Jones Case to make his power available for the highest price?
Seems like the government is forklifting ailing cattle into the food chain.
