Dickie Scruggs To Be Arraigned Nov. 20th

David Rossmiller (over at Insurance Coverage Law Blog) reports that the federal district court in Alabama has set November 20th for Dickie Scruggs's arraignment on contempt charges. (Prior posts here, here and here).  The court also will hear Scruggs's motion to dismiss that day.  (Scruggs earlier sought dismissal by filing a petition for writ of prohibition and writ of mandamus with the Eleventh Circuit, but the Court of Appeals denied that request in late October). 

An article in today's National Law Journal (via law.com) provides a detailed explanation of the events leading to the contempt charges, as well as commentary on the likely success of the contempt charges.
