Legal Bills Hold Up Fourth 'Big Al' Prosecution

Fusco is doing a nice job of
not letting his trial for the
murder of Big Al move along
smoothly.
Prosecution of a fourth defendant in the 2003 murder of Adolfo "Big Al" Bruno, slowed when the alleged killer fought extradition from his native Italy, is now throwing a wrench into the works again via a dispute over $5,500 in lawyers' fees, reports masslive.com.

"Emilio Fusco, 42, of Longmeadow, appeared in U.S. District Court in Manhattan on Tuesday for a status conference and to introduce a brand-new lawyer to the case after recently firing another one. The outgoing attorney, William I. Aronwald, told the court he intends to hold hostage 15,000 pages of alleged evidence in the case until Fusco pays his bill," the website reports.

"But, according to his new lawyer, Richard Lind, Fusco contends he was overbilled by Aronwald and doesn't intend to pay him any more money. The legal standoff that played out in court prompted U.S. District Judge P. Kevin Castel to order Aronwald and Lind into a private room - or even better yet, to lunch together - for no less than 45 minutes to arrive at a compromise."
