Retains attorney

16 Jul, 2014

Bergdhal retains attorney Eugene Fidell as representation in the ongoing investigation into whether he is guilty of deserting his post in Afghanistan.  A lawyer and lecturer at Yale University, Fidell will be representing Bergdhall pro bono. When asked about taking on Bergdhal’s case and not being paid for it, Fidell says,
