In yesterday's Clarion Ledger, Sid Salter reviewed "Kings of Tort" by Alan Lange and Tom Dawson. The book tells the story of Dickie Scruggs's fall from grace in the bribery scandal that led to his current address in federal prison.
As an aside, I know nothing about copyright law, but I am surprised that the book title is so similar to John Grishama's popular novel "The King of Torts."
UPDATE: Readers might also be interested in "The King and the Dean: Melvin Belli, Roscoe Pound, and the Common Law Nation," which is chapter four in Patriots and Cosmopolitans: Hidden Histories of American Law by John Witt (Yale).
