After the big State Farm settlement announced earlier this year with Scruggs clients in Mississippi, I wondered if wed see other mass settlements. Heres the answer: the Scruggs Katrina Group yesterday announced a settlement with Nationwide that will include up to 227 Mississippi policyholders. Heres a story from Mike Kunzelman of the Associated Press. Heres another story from Anita Lee of the Sun Herald, which says the Scruggs Group still has 280 Katrina cases pending against Allstate. Heres the announcement from the Scruggs Group website. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but I suppose they will leak out eventually, considering all the people who have to be told about it. This settlement, of course, doesnt include cases filed by other lawyers.
