Papers Show Miller’s Lawyers Paid $150,000
Documents filed in Los Angeles federal court revealed Monday that the two defense lawyers for Richard W. Miller are to be paid more than $150,000 by the government for defending the former FBI agent in his first espionage trial last year.
Stanley Greenberg and Joel Levine initially were hired privately by Miller, but were designated as his court-appointed lawyers on a retroactive basis after Miller’s first trial ended in a deadlocked jury Nov. 6.
Greenberg will receive $78,611.50 and Levine is to be paid $71,400.90 for legal services up to Jan. 16. As court appointed lawyers, the defense attorneys will also be paid by the government for their defense efforts in Miller’s second trial, now nearing its conclusion.
