Lawyers Seeking Immunity In Steele Dossier Trial To Exclude Evidence

WASHINGTON, DC (April 6, 2022)— Lawyers for indicted former Perkins Coie partner Michael Sussmann want one of his former clients to be granted immunity to testify in his defense. They are also trying to exclude evidence about an alleged opposition research effort against former President Donald Trump, which they argue is irrelevant to Sussmann’s case.

Meanwhile, a federal appeals court has reversed sanctions against Steven Biss, a Virginia attorney best known for representing former Republican congressman Devin Nunes in several defamation lawsuits against media outlets.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit tossed nearly $34,000 in sanctions that a district court judge imposed on Biss and his client, Russian-born academic Svetlana Lokhova.
