Brett Kimberlin has filed another motion asking for a freebie lawyer as counsel for any as yet unscheduled oral argument in his remaining appeal at the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. He’s trying to get his Speedway Bombing convictions set aside.
There’s interesting information dealing with Kimberlin’s early failed appeal in paragraph 3 where he says former Solicitor General Neal Katyal and the firm of Hogan Lovells “have agreed to represent Appellant pro bon in the filing of a Petition of Certiorari to the Supreme Court to address Appellant’s wrongful conviction, the conflicts between the circuits re coram nobis, and the corrupt actions of the Government in Appellant’s case.”
I suppose that means I’ll have to keep an eye open for a petition.
Paragraph 5 raises this question: If a big time lawyer and law firm are willing to take on his other appeal, why is Kimberlin having to ask the court to “recruit” them as pro bono counsel in this case.
