Vaccine rights attorney Alan Phillips spent 48 hours in jail last week for contempt of court because he refused to breach attorney-client privilege by providing the North Carolina State Bar with confidential client files.
Mr. Phillips is a nationally recognized expert and presenter on vaccine policy and law. He is the nation’s only attorney whose practice is focused solely on vaccine exemptions and legislative activism.
For at least the past two years, the North Carolina Bar has been investigating Mr. Phillips; unable to identify any evidence of wrongdoing, the Bar has nevertheless filed a lawsuit against Mr. Phillips in an unjustified attempt to revoke his license to practice law.
It is our understanding that Mr. Phillips has filed several complaints, requesting that an independent review look into the State Bar’s actions in this matter, yet his grievances have been dismissed.
We can only assume Mr. Phillips is being harassed because of his chosen specialty – vaccine law.
Mr. Philips was released from jail, but he will presumably go back to jail if he refuses to turn over his client list by his next hearing on Thursday, May 9, 2019.
