Philadelphia partner Barry Gross was quoted in a Philadelphia Inquirer article titled, “Christie disclosed grand jury information, Wildstein says.” The article discusses David Wildstein’s new allegation that Governor Christie disclosed information about a grand jury proceeding he oversaw while Wildstein was a U.S. attorney.

Barry said that if true, Christie’s remarks “would be a clear violation of the federal criminal grand jury secrecy rules and subject to contempt of court.” Barry emphasized that these secrecy rules are important because prosecutors do not want to expose ongoing investigations. He also stated that  “disclosure of an investigation or possible prosecution could tarnish a person's reputation if he isn't prosecuted.”
