Dennis Glascott Featured in "Buffalo Attorney One of 'A Few Good Men,'" Buffalo Law Journal January 27, 2014

Dennis P. Glascott, a partner in Goldberg Segalla’s Product Liability and General Liability Practice Groups, was featured in a Buffalo Law Journal spotlight on his early career in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps of the U.S. Navy — and his involvement in the real-life case that inspired the Broadway play and major motion picture A Few Good Men. Dennis represented a Private First Class who was one of a group of Marines accused of assaulting another Marine stationed at Guantanamo Bay, under implied orders from their superior, as an informal discipline for breaking the chain of command.

The article highlights Dennis’s experience on the case, how it made its way to the big screen, and what little of the real story is represented in the film. “I don’t think it was a fair characterization of the Navy attorneys,” Dennis told the Buffalo Law Journal. “They made it look like the Navy lawyers would sell the guy out and the Tom Cruise character is portrayed as kind of lazy. … I didn’t see any of that. I saw a lot of eager young men and women who just wanted to do the right thing.”
