Disgraced Hollywood P.I. Anthony Pellicano will rep himself in court when he goes to trial on wiretapping charges next month. News reports say a federal judge today reluctantly allowed it even though he told The Pelican it was a bad decision. But a U.S. Supreme Court ruling allows a defendant to do so if he insists. Pellicano’s lawyers told reporters later that the discredited private eye’s motivation was to save money after the judge refused to appoint the attorneys at court expense. It sure looks as if the February 27th trial is going to become a reality after so many postponements (3 in all).
