Adkins wants AG DQ'ed from his case

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Local businessman James Adkins has moved to have the Attorney General's Office disqualified from representing the Guam Police Department. Adkins filed suit against several police officers alleging they had wrongfully arrested him after he had taken photographs of a car crash on his cell phone. He also alleges the department tampered with his cell phone and destroyed the photographs. 

Adkins' attorney, Anita Arriola, filed a motion to disqualify the AG's Office from representing the police officers who are being sued. She explains in her motion that Assistant Attorney General Rob Weinberg is a necessary witness, as he admitted to giving the advice to police officers to pull the cell phone from evidence to view the photos. 

Because of his personal involvement, Arriola contends Weinberg will be a witness and therefore cannot represent the defendants in the case.
