Saturday there was an article about the sealing of the file in Eaton v. Frisby, which is one of the two cases where Ed Peters was apparently secretly hired (by plaintiff Eaton Corp. and/or its lawyers) to influence Judge DeLaughter (the other being Wilson v. Scruggs). There’s an interesting “watch this space” heads up from one of Frisby’s lawyers:
Whatever happens in the case will set a precedent in Mississippi, said state Rep. Ed Blackmon Jr. of Canton, one of Frisby’s attorneys.
Blackmon said he doesn’t expect an end to the case anytime soon, and added during an interview earlier this month, “I think the case is about to take a dramatic turn.”
“I can’t say anything about what is going on because everything is under seal,” he said. “It’s an unprecedented sealing of all documents.”
Frisby has continued to make motions to unseal records, according to court records.
“They (Eaton) are the ones who want it sealed,” Blackmon said.
