Contempt of Court: Reversed on Appeal

A criminal defense lawyer was brought to a grand jury to reveal a fugitive client’s whereabouts.  He refused – and was held in contempt.  Brian J. Neary appealed the order that the lawyer’s silence was protected by the attorney-client privilege.  Both the New Jersey Appellate Division and the New Jersey Supreme Court agreed with Brian J. Neary and the client’s secret was protected.
