Goldberg Kohn attorney and former bankruptcy judge Ronald Barliant testified before the U.S. Senate Impeachment Trial Committee as a bankruptcy expert on the fifth day of New Orleans federal Judge Thomas Porteous's impeachment trial in Washington, D.C.

Porteous was accused of having a corrupt financial relationship with a law firm involved in a case on his docket and improperly denying a motion to recuse himself from that matter, of being involved in corrupt conduct with bail bondsmen, and of making material false statements and representations under penalty of perjury related to his personal bankruptcy filing.

Mr. Barliant's testimony begins at 1:38:00.
