On May 11, 2017, Geoff was featured on a panel hosted by the Orange County chapter of the Federal Bar Association. The civil practice seminar was titled “A Case Study from the Watergate Prosecutions: The Perils of Ex Parte Communication.” The panel focused on documented examples of where the Watergate cover-up trial judge, John Sirica, met privately almost a dozen times with Watergate prosecutors – in flagrant violation of the defendant’s right to a fair trial.
The event took place at the Ronald Reagan Federal Court House in Santa Ana. Other panelists were District Judge Anthony Guilford and Magistrate Judge John Early. For more information, visit the event page.
