RICHARD CHICHAKLI'S TRIAL JUDGE DENIES HIS ATTORNEY'S MOTION FOR ADDITIONAL COUNSEL


Mitchell Dinnerstein, recently appointed to represent convicted arms trafficker, Richard Chichakli, in his post-trial efforts to set aside the verdict, or to obtain a new trial, has asked the Court to appoint associate counsel. Apparently, the sheer volume of the trial transcript, and discovery, in the case, is too much for attorney Dinnerstein, and he has requested help.

The lawyer wants to address the Rule 29  and 33 issues, which deal with setting aside the verdict of guilty, and for a new trial. District Judge William Pauley denied the motion without further comment. These pending motions, filed Pro Se  by Chichakli, remain outstanding, and must be resolved by the Court, before sentencing can occur.
