Scruggs and Nationwide settle 227 Katrina cases

After the big State Farm settlement announced earlier this year with Scruggs clients in Mississippi, I wondered if we’d see other mass settlements.  Here’s the answer: the Scruggs Katrina Group yesterday announced a settlement with Nationwide that will include up to 227 Mississippi policyholders.  Here’s a story from Mike Kunzelman of the Associated Press.  Here’s another story from Anita Lee of the Sun Herald, which says the Scruggs Group still has 280 Katrina cases pending against Allstate.  Here’s 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, doesn’t include cases filed by other lawyers.
