Tribune Interviews Baradaran about Effect of Utah AG Scandal

Shima Baradaran Baughman, Associate Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, was interviewed for a July 21 Salt Lake Tribune article about the scandal surrounding former Utah Attorneys General Mark Shurtleff and John Swallow, who face a total of 23 charges.

“It shows the office was, at least at the top — and there were a lot of prosecutors who work in that office who are not implicated— at least for the two individuals who have been charged, there has been a lot of corruption and disregard for the very laws those two individuals were charged to protect,” Baradaran said. “It would be a shocking display of hypocrisy if there were some merit to these charges at trial.”
