The tab for the legal defense of Jimmy Dimora in the federal corruption proceedings is going to be hefty. Super hefty. (Go ahead and insert your own Jimmy Dimora fat joke here.)
There's mountains of paperwork and countless hours of FBI wiretaps to listen to, and all told, from the moment Richard Lillie, Dimora's lawyer, started working on the case two years ago to when Dimora's trial starts in September 2011 to whenever the case finally ends, the legal bills are going to be astronomical.
And Jimmy Dimora can't pay them.
Lillie filed paperwork asking that he be removed from the case unless the government starts paying what Dimora can't.
