United States v. T.K.
As co-counsel with legendary attorney James E. Ferguson, II, Jake Sussman represented an attorney who was charged in federal court with multiple counts of obstruction of justice and witness tampering. The defense successfully severed the six charges into three separate trials, as well as limited what evidence the prosecution would be able to use at trial. On the eve of jury selection in the first trial, the defense was able to successfully resolve the entire case and all charges were ultimately dismissed. Sussman continued representing T.K. in proceedings before the North Carolina State Bar.
