Sen. Trent Lott settles lawsuit against State Farm

Its always fun to write about Sen. Trent Lott of Mississippi, so I guess Im a little disappointed hes not going to trial in his Katrina lawsuit against State Farm.  This story by Mike Kunzelman of the Associated Press says he and State Farm have settled.  The terms were not disclosed.  Coincidentally, I checked the docket in Lotts case late last week to see if anything was going on in the case, and noticed that Magistrate Judge Robert Walker considered Lotts motion to unseal deposition transcripts where State Farm employees had taken the Fifth, and denied it in part.  The depositions in question were taken in another case, McFarland v. State Farm. Heres a pdf of the order.  Judge Walker said where that in any case where the witnesses had invoked their Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination, the depositions would remain sealed.  In any cases where they had not invoked the Fifth, however, the transcripts could be unsealed.
