Benjamin Gluck Gives Up Representation Of Frontline Medical In Criminal Organization Munir Uwaydah Case In Downtown LA. Sergeant McCrillis Continues On The Witness Stand, Claiming Stand-Alone Public Documents Are Not Privileged.
By Lonce Lamonte - September 16, 2018

Defense lawyer Benjamin Gluck, in his dark cerulean blue suit and circle-drop eye glasses, told the court in the afternoon of Tuesday, September 4th 2018, that he no longer represents Frontline Medical Associates in this Criminal Organization Munir Uwaydah case.  He will now be exclusively representing chiropractor Paul Turley, who was a prominent Dr. Uwaydah associate for many years starting shortly after the turn of the 21st century. 

This switch to exclusive representation of Dr. Turley could mean some amelioration of Benjamin Gluck’s conflict of interest in the case.  But it can’t wipe it out entirely.  The prosecution has a motion filed in favor of recusing Gluck’s law firm, Bird Marella, from the case for egregious conflict of interest.  That’s because Gluck has represented Dr. Uwaydah in so many various transactions within the past decade, including representing numerous Uwaydah associates, as well, both charged and uncharged.   But, the separation from Frontline Medical allows Gluck to focus more on Paul Turley’s defense with less conflict from Dr. Uwaydah, which is great.   However, there’s also the consideration of Marisa Schermbeck Nelson’s proffer statements.
