NYT and WSJ Offer Dueling Portraits of Dickie Scruggs

Dickie Scruggs, a key architect of the past settlement between tobacco companies and the attorneys general, is the subject of dueling portraits in the New York Times, which offers a favorable sketch, and the Wall Street Journal, which doesn't.  Both articles discuss Mr. Scruggs' recent work on behalf of plaintiffs against State Farm in connection with damage from Hurricane Katrina.  (Thanks to Professor Richard Nagareda and law student Evan Anziska for mentioning the articles to me.)
