Tulane Law Adjunct Professor Ross Garber, a nationally-prominent impeachment law expert, has joined the network CNN as a legal analyst.
Garber tweeted out the announcement in early June, saying he was “thrilled to be joining the @CNN team as a Legal Analyst. Hoping to help make sense of the day’s legal news."
Garber is a partner at Shipman & Goodwin, in Washington and Hartford, and co-chair of the firm’s Government Investigations and White Collar Crime Group.
Most recently, Garber represented embattled former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens, a decorated Navy SEAL and rising GOP star, who resigned in late May after a scandal involving a sexual relationship with his hairdresser, claims that he took explicit photographs of her without her consent, and that he misused charity funds. Garber has also represented Gov. Robert Bentley of Alabama, Gov. Mark Sanford of South Carolina and Gov. John Rowland of Connecticut when they faced investigations or impeachments.
At Tulane this Fall, Garber will be teaching a course on Political investigations and Impeachment, a class he taught last Spring as well.
The New York Times recently wrote a story calling Garber “arguably the nation’s leading practitioner” of impeachment law, part of a small group of "battle-tested lawyers who have improvised legal strategies largely on history and hunches."
“Tulane Law students are extremely fortunate to have the leading national expert on this very timely topic teaching again this Fall,” said Law School Dean David Meyer.
