Selected Court Cases

In re: CA

An attorney for one of the highest ranking members of al-Qaeda later raised a disability claim in connection with being taken hostage by his client and co-conspirators inside one of the most secure facilities in the United States. The Forensic Panel’s specialist examined the claimant, his history, and his capability to return to the bar. Challenges inherent to the examination were the examinee’s high functioning, professional esteem, and lingering effects of the client’s psychological manipulation of him. 


The case settled without trial, and The Panel’s efforts were instrumental to understanding the relationship between the attorney’s relationship to his psychopathic al-Qaeda client and his later disability.
