  •  Hood is known as the guy (2+ / 0-)

    who filed suit against high profile insurance companies after Hurricane Katrina when they were trying to defraud homeowners of various protections.

    He won nearly every case. And ever since then, he's been very popular and active fighting "business and banking interests."

    There is a slightly darker side to this as well - Hood did this with Richard Scruggs (a friend of Trent Lott), who was later convicted on civil contempt charges.

    But most people think Hood's work suing insurance companies gave Mississippian residents a better start at rebuilding than those in Louisiana.
