    The judge was aware of that, and did not order it. I would call it harmless error, especially since the PSU 3 requested it.

    I think it was the poster Rlaub (not sure of the spelling) that made the good point if the PSU 3 had a reasonable belief that they were being represented by Baldwin, the attorney-client relationship did exist. I think his/her point is a good one.

    However, even there was a privileged relationship the PSU 3, Baldwin still had an obligation under the canons of legal ethics to report a crime committed by her clients.



    Though not the full act, the PA ethics requirement is:

    (c) A lawyer may reveal such information to the extent that the lawyer reasonably believes necessary:


    (3) to prevent, mitigate or rectify the consequences of a client’s criminal or fraudulent act in the commission of which the lawyer’s services are being or had been used; or

    Defense has 30 days to file arguments on why Baldwin's testimony violates attorney client privilege. http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/ind..._river_default

    The court orders are quite short.

    I just wanted to point out that Baldwin's "proffer" and her full testimony are in Spanier's filing.

    I thought this was interesting from one of the articles about Kane's investigation. Another reason for Baldwin to be on the hot seat during the admins' trials.

    Silverwood also said she blames Baldwin for what Moulton said was Penn State's inability to quickly produce documents once subpoenaed by a grand jury. Scott Paterno, the son of Paterno, tweeted a similar comment: "Look who was stonewalling at PSU - sudden star witness Cynthia Baldwin."

    While Moulton's report doesn't specifically name Baldwin as the person in Penn State's offices who was thwarting efforts to obtain information about Sandusky, she was mentioned in a footnote that she was the one to whom the subpoeana was addressed.

    In a June 2011 email between investigators, Baldwin was named as the one who had "continue[d] to stall by filing motions to try to thwart our subpoena requests."

    Investigators generally agree that Penn State took more than two years to produce information requested by the grand jury, and that delay is likely a part of prosecutors' case against the three administrators awaiting trial.

    Baldwin will be permitted to testify. The PSU 3's numerous motions were rejected.
