After three lawyers assigned to the case bowed out for various personal reasons, a man in Alabama has finally agreed to take on the case of Harvey Updyke, the former state trooper who allegedly poisoned Auburn's oak trees at Toomer's Corner. The lucky attorney, Glennon Threatt, Jr., went on the Paul Finebaum radio show yesterday (the same show on which Updyke initially claimed he'd done the deed) and said he'd be "proud to represent" the man who named his children Bear Bryant and Crimson Tyde [sic]. Threatt previously represented the disgraced former Birmingham mayor, Larry Langford.
