Our long term readers no doubt remember the lusty saga of Maria Brown who surfaced with salacious allegations of sexual harassment against her former employer and Scruggs Katrina Group member Nutt and McAlister PLLC when all hell was breaking loose with the Dickie Scruggs criminal case. At the time we were criticized in some quarters because we didn’t blindly believe Ms Brown’s allegations of sexual harassment and of course the complaint vaporized in the face of production of her in office emails which revealed Ms Brown possessed a very healthy libido.
Today Ms Brown surfaced in the Clarion Ledger telling a story of now having to wait tables one day a week to supplement the meager income her new job provides. Ms Brown is also sick of working for lawyers and recounts how she was “laid off” from her paralegal job at Nutt & McAlister and working briefly at another law firm before saying sayonara to the legal profession. What the article doesn’t mention however is why Ms Brown has “had enough of lawyers”, ostensibly even her one time paramour John Doe.
What is clear is that the economy was not the only thing slumping when Ms Brown left Nutt & McAlister and frankly I think all parties involved in the lawsuit found the entire affair most deflating, especially John Doe. From the perspective of the policyholders the entire specter of being used as pawns in a legal pissing contest was icing on the cake of two years of abuse by insurers and worse, certain of the legal team that was supposed to be representing them.
