Insurance trial concludes

New Orleans CityBusiness -- The Business Newspaper of Metropolitan New Orleans:
"A groundbreaking Hurricane Katrina insurance trial drew to a close Tuesday with testimony from an engineer who concluded the storm's water, not wind, was responsible for virtually all damage to a Pascagoula couple's home.

Richard 'Dickie' Scruggs, an attorney for plaintiffs Paul and Julie Leonard, suggested that Timothy Marshall of Dallas-based HAAG Engineering Co. used outdated engineering standards and unreliable meteorologic data in the analysis he performed for Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co."
Looks like Dickie Scruggs is going to be a nemesis for insurance companies for a long time.
