Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed John D. O’Connor.
One of the features of a democratic society is its public trials, which enable the public to determine for itself what was true, false or indifferent. For example, the public likely held a different view from that of the O.J. Simpson criminal jury. In the Sussmann case, as we will discuss, the public was able to see what evidence was admitted for the jury’s consideration and that which was not. As here explained, under the evidence admitted, Sussman was correctly acquitted, even though the entirety of the evidence tells a far different story.
Kevin Price introduces Price of Business show recurring guest, John D. O’Connor. O’Connor was the famed attorney of Watergate’s “Deep Throat.
According to PostGateBook.com “O’Connor served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Northern California from 1974-1979, representing the United States in both criminal and civil cases. Among his interesting assignments have been representation of the government during the OPEC oil embargo of the 1970s; writing Fifth Amendment and “state of mind” briefs for the prosecution in United States v. Patricia Hearst; representing the FDIC, FSLC and RTC during the savings and loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s; representing California Attorney General Dan Lungren in campaign-related litigation; defending R.J. Reynolds Tobacco in significant smoking and health litigation; representing Coach Don Nelson in litigation with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban; and representing W. Mark Felt regarding the revelation of his identity as Deep Throat.”
