1. DOJ Paralegal Whistleblower Dissed &
Dismissed - Exclusive Interview!
by Andrew Kreig for KNOW, The Magazine for Paralegals

....But just a year later, the prosecution’s all-out effort to convict
Siegelman and HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy brought Grimes to
a career crisis.

In July 2007, Grimes stepped forward to allege that her colleagues
had violated basic legal protections to ensure a fair trial. She claimed,
for example, that prosecutors had communicated with jurors. Also, she
said pro-conviction jurors had privately strategized by email outside
the jury room to obtain guilty verdicts -- all without required notification
to the defense.  Moreover, she complained of sexually offensive
comments by colleagues, particularly in an off-site prosecutors’ office
that was entirely devoted to what they called “The Big Case.”

Whistle Blower Tamara Grimes
was fired from her job.
"I have always considered myself to
be a moderate Republican,” she
said. “I believe in the U.S.
Constitution, and that what
happened in Montgomery with the
Siegelman/Scrushy prosecution is
a travesty of justice."
