Now the Pied Piper has played his tune and carried the State Supreme Court on the path to a drowning river. From the Jackson Clarion Ledger:
One-time Hinds County District Attorney Ed Peters, who has been given immunity in exchange for his cooperation in a judicial bribery investigation, is getting his wish to be disbarred. On Thursday, the state Supreme Court agreed to Peters' resignation from the practice of law. In December, Peters submitted his "irrevocable resignation" rather than contest a complaint filed against him with the Mississippi Bar. In his resignation letter, he said, "In view of my retirement and resignation, I do not desire to defend this matter."
