Bergdahl is seeking a pardon by President Obama

Fayetteville Observer

Florence Rogatz Visiting Lecturer in Law Eugene Fidell is quoted in an article about a request filed by his client Bowe Bergdahl for a pardon from President Obama.

You don’t have to be a lawyer, but you have to be an involved person. You have to care enough about things to do something about them. It doesn’t have to be politics. It can be your church, your school, your community center; however, you want to be involved. What you cannot do is ignore things.”


U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor

Class of 1979
