Bruno Update II--L.A.'s Dopest Attorney On the Case
Bruno Bruhwhiler, from the LA branch of the kooks, has an update on his terrorist threat trial:
We have some EXCELLENT NEWS to share!!! One of WeAreChangeLA’s most active and committed members, Laurie Pershall, recommended Harvard Law School graduate Allison Margolin, daughter of famed Bruce Margolin- author of the California Medical Marijuana Laws. Bruno met with Allison and her team and has retained her services. Allison comes from a family of progressive lawyers. She is ready to take this case through trial if necessary. She’s a winner and we are thrilled to have her.
Allison has her own blog here (last updated in 2007), where she bills herself as "LA's Dopest Attorney". It appears evident that she mostly handles pot possession cases.
On the financial front, it certainly appears that Bruno's "involuntary" facial expressions will turn out to be quite expensive:
Thank you for all of your support and for every financial contribution. Every dollar counts! At this point we do not have the donations needed to go to trial. All that has been Chipped In up to date has gone to retain attorneys and to pay filing fees and some of the bail. So far we have spent $19,200 plus, ($9,500 for the bail bonds [non-refundable], $500 for the continuance lawyer, $1,200 for the last Lawyer who didn’t work out, $7,500 to retain the new Defense Attorney, Allison Margolin, for pre trial, and $500 in filing fees and notary charges as well as the several hundred dollars that CHIP IN has taken for their cut). You all have donated over $11 Thousand Dollars through the “CHIP IN”!!! THANK YOU!!! We are still in the red and will need the projected $18,000 plus on the “CHIP IN” if we can avoid trial. If we go to trial the total costs to Free Bruno will be over $27 Thousand dollars.
