  • Superior Court judge at center of St. Paul’s scandal

    Boston Globe - 05/23/2017

    Daniel Medwed, a professor at Northeastern University School of Law, said that Gordon could not be faulted for aiming to protect a client’s reputation, as long as he did not break laws or cross ethical boundaries. But he said the very notion that Gordon worked for the school as an outside counsel erases any possibility that he could have conducted an independent investigation.

    “You might have some inherent conflict because the person writing the checks, the school, might have a self-interest in the [investigation] coming out in a certain way,” he said. “That means your independence is inherently compromised.”
