Bernie Grimm, '83 alum and criminal defense attorney at Cozen O'Connor, was quoted in NPR on a case involving a criminal defense attorney and private investigators fabricating evidence. In June a judge found criminal defense attorney Charles Daum and private investigators Iman and Daaiyah Pasha guilty of conspiracy to obstruct justice. Bernie Grimm represented Daaiyah Pasha, one of the private investigators found guilty in the conspiracy scheme. Grimm says he is worried about the chilling implications of the Daum case.

"It's very dangerous when ... you're representing somebody and you actually think the government's involved in listening to those conversations or the government's going to turn your client one day against you," said Grimm, who defended one of the private investigators in the case. "So what that engenders is a lot of distrust between the lawyer and the client right off the bat."
