Boise attorney interviewed for '60 Minutes'

doland@idahostatesman.comNovember 1, 2013 

Boise based-attorney David Nevin will appear on Sunday’s edition of “60 Minutes” in a segment about the 9/11 Commission hearings. Nevin is one of the defense lawyers alleging that the war crimes tribunal handling the cases of the alleged 9/11 terrorists is a sham.

Reporter Lesley Stahl interviews Brig. Gen. Mark Martins, who is in charge of seeing that the 9/11 suspects receive a fair trial at the U.S. naval base in Cuba. The “60 Minutes” cameras were the first allowed to tape inside the courtroom where the defendants will be tried, and inside the defendants’ holding cells.

As part of the John Adams Project, Nevin — of Boise law firm Nevin, Benjamin, McKay and Bartlett — is on the defense team for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who is accused of being the chief architect of the 9/11 attacks in 2001.

Watch it on CBS after the Steelers v. Patriots game, which is scheduled to start at 2:25 p.m., and the local news.
