Scruggs' son now facing trial

Zach Scruggs is in the unusual position of having to legally distance himself from his father -- Richard "Dickie" Scruggs.

Zach is not only as partner in his father's law firm, but he is now facing trial with his father on charges of conspiring to bribe a Mississippi Judge.

A federal judge is expected to rule tomorrow on Zach's request to have his case severed from his father's, among other key decisions on pending motions. Zach's attorney last week in court argued that Zach's case should be separated from his father's because the name that has served him so well in the past now may stand in the way of his defense.
