Zach Scruggs Challenging Disbarment Ruling

Zach Scruggs says the Mississippi Supreme Court erred in ruling that he is "permanently disbarred" from practicing law.

Scruggs is serving a 14-month sentence for knowing about the bribery scheme involving his father, Richard "Dickie" Scruggs.

Scruggs says Mississippi bar rules "do not provide for permanent disbarment."

Scruggs is asking a U.S. District court to stay the disbarment of his federal license while the Mississippi court considers his request for clarification.
