Judge Removed from Bergrin Case

/ 19.Jun, 2012

In a new twist to the always interesting case of Paul Bergrin, the Third Circuit, Court of Appeals, has removed the judge overseeing the case, stating that his impartiality could reasonably be questioned.  For those of you who have not read our earlier posts on Mr. Bergrin, he is a former prosecutor turned criminal defense attorney who allegedly suggested one of his clients murder a federal witness saying “no witness, no case.”  Mr. Bergrin faced charges of witness tampering, racketeering, mortgage fraud, murder of a federal witness, drug trafficking, witness tampering and conspiracy.  The murder trial ended with a hung jury.  A retrial will be scheduled with a new judge.
