Judge Reprimands Rubashkin Lawyer On Juror Interviews



A federal judge reprimanded an attorney working on behalf of jailed former Agriprocessors executive Sholom Rubashkin.

In a meeting Tuesday, U.S. District Chief Judge Linda Reade told the attorney that interviews of jurors in Rubashkin’s 2009 trial on bank fraud charges cannot be used for future appeals or other court proceedings, according to The Gazette, a newspaper based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Reade met with attorneys from both Rubashkin and the government.
