So who is paying Mr. Ferrer's bill? And why isn't a US Attorney handling this?
And while I'm wondering out loud, if there are so many federal judges, why do so few handle so many of the shadiest cases?
The first rule of getting a lawyer is to let the lawyer talk for you.
"Good morning, pistol cop. I'd like to comply with this letter, but I'm still arranging council. Can I have him call you back by the end of the week?"
