Guam - District Court Judge David Ezra has decided that the U.S. Attorney's Office can depose Attorney Curtis Van De Veld to find out what he did with $30,000 he received as attorney's fees. According to news files, Van De Veld was paid $30,000 to represent Kenrick Gajo, who was the subject of a police investigation into drugs.
Gajo forfeited more than $100,000 in cash to police admitting it came from selling drugs. Van De Veld has fought the federal government's effort to seize the money Gajo paid him saying he spent it all. Judge Ezra ruled that the attorney can be asked what he did with the money and whether there's any money in any bank accounts that once held the $30,000.
