Charles Scoville lashes out at attorneys for court losses
Charles Scoville isn’t having a good time.
Currently incarcerated in Juab County Jail, last month Scoville had his Supreme Court bid to legalize Ponzi schemes in the US denied.
Now the lawyers representing him against the SEC want out.
In a December 6th Motion to Withdraw, attorney D. Loren Washburn reveals he’s at loggerheads with Scoville over representation.
Following the Supreme Court rejection, Scoville’s attorneys pursued settlement discussions.
This infuriated Scoville (right), who
faulted counsel for not more forcefully (or at all) raising certain legal issues before this Court and reviewing courts.
Scoville told his attorneys he’d lost confidence in them and directed them to “withdraw from representing him”.
Washburn’s motion pertains to his representation and that of his colleague Jacob L. Fonnesbeck.
The same day the Motion to Withdraw was filed, the court noted Washburn and his firm Smith Washburn, LLP also represented Traffic Monsoon.
The court has directed Washburn to clarify whether he intends to withdraw representation from Traffic Monsoon as well.
Pending court approval, the withdrawal of Scoville’s attorneys leaves him increasingly isolated.
To the knowledge of the undersigned, (Scoville) has not located replacement counsel.
Mr. Scoville did not explain to the undersigned whether he intended to attempt to represent himself or to find a lawyer to substitute in to represent him in the further proceedings of this case.
Mr. Scoville has no current functioning phone number.
Juab County Jail does not accept incoming inmate calls, but arrangements for a call from an inmate can be made.
Looking forward, a scheduling conference has been set for December 17th.
Update 29th December 2019 – As per twin December 23rd orders, Smith Washburn, LLP are no longer representing either Charles Scoville or Traffic Monsoon.
Now THAT would be something to see.
Scamville’s arguments were just so ridiculous, I’m surprised he got so worked up when they got laughed out of court repeatedly.
You have to understand that Charles is a narcissist, pathological liar and a sociopath. He is always right and everyone else is wrong that doesn’t agree with him.
He is going to have a hard time finding a new attorney because he and the family are broke, well that’s what they claim.
Even his current attorneys have reported he is in debt to them for over $200,000, and Charles wanted his victims to pay the bill.
Remember, he claimed that the only reason why he was appealing each court decision was for the good of and to protect the members as having TM back and viable was the only way they were going to be made whole.
It was a ruse to try to get donations for his legal defense fund. It didn’t work despite his and his mom’s begging.
Merry Christmas, Chuckles.
P.S. Epstein didn’t kill himself.

I wonder how long the court is going to give Charles to get a new lawyer or represent himself.
We all know he is going to play this for as long as he can. He doesn’t want to appear in court in prison garb for his civil trial and a guard sitting next to him.
Besides he has no choice but to represent himself. Parents are claiming they can’t pay attorney fees for his frivolous appeals, so there is no money to pay for a new attorney.
Even if he could, the court would have to allow the new attorney to get up to speed on the case which could take months.
Firing his attorneys was all part of his plan to delay the civil trial for as long as he can since he lost all his appeals. And we all know the only purpose of the appeals was to delay the civil trial for as long as he could to run out the criminal conviction and be free for his civil trial.
