Mr. Rikleen was the defense attorney appointed to Clint Barton during his trial for the murder of Bruce Banner.[1] He noticed a bias from Judge Rappaport in favor of prosecutor Matt Murdock, for which Rikleen privately suggested Murdock investigate his co-counsel Evelyn Stanzler, believing that there was a conspiracy to convict Barton.

Murdock eventually discovered that Stanzler was indeed trying to manipulate the outcome of the trial, in order to use Barton's conviction to help General Strakofsky promote the reinstitution of the Superhuman Registration Act, and proceeded to ensure Barton had a fair trial, which ended up resulting in his acquittal.[2]
