Fredericksen Interviewed Over Trump Lawyer’s Decision to Drop Lawsuits Against BuzzFeed, Fusion GPS

19 April 2018 CBS Evening News News
Partner Scott Fredericksen was interviewed on the CBS Evening News about Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s decision to drop lawsuits against Fusion GPS and BuzzFeed, the organizations responsible for creating and publishing the so-called Steele dossier, which details alleged connections between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Fredericksen said material uncovered in civil cases is routinely used by prosecutors to make criminal cases. “In white collar criminal defense, the strategic choice is always made to protect the client in the criminal case first and second, don’t expose this person to further potential charges in the civil lawsuit by forcing him to testify,” he said.
