    Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the former Taliban prisoner freed six weeks ago, has retained a civilian lawyer to help him in the Army investigation into his 2009 disappearance. The lawyer, Yale Law Professor Eugene Fidell, says in an interview with The Daily Beast's Josh Rogin that Bergdahl's "case is one of a kind really."

Fidell is working with an “interim” military lawyer who was appointed to represent Bergdahl.
