LOS ANGELES � A federal judge in Los Angeles has ordered an attorney for civil rights lawyer Stephen Yagman to respond to claims made yesterday by a “concerned” juror in his criminal trial. Yagman, a partner at Venice Beach, Calif.-based Yagman & Yagman & Reichmann, was convicted on June 22 of tax evasion, bankruptcy fraud and money laundering. In court papers filed on Thursday, U.S. District Judge Stephen Wilson, for the Central District of California, said a third alternate juror in Yagman’s case called the court the day before about a phone conversation placed to her home by Mi Kim, one of Yagman’s attorneys. When asked how she got the juror’s personal information, Kim told the juror that the juror questionnaire or another court document included such details. “The juror questionnaire, which was edited by the Court from Defendant’s proposal, did not ask for any personal contact information,” the court order states. “Additionally, the Court is unaware of any other documents that have been disclosed by the Court to the parties that would contain such information.” The judge acknowledged that jurors were told they could talk, or not talk, to parties in the case. Kim, a lawyer at Los Angeles-based Tarlow & Berk, declined to comment. She was ordered to file briefs by July 2.
