Local talk show hostís attorney resigns

A local talk show host may soon be representing himself in court.

Attorney Steve Joseph filed a motion, which was granted Thursday, to resign as attorney for Edward “Eddie” Garcia.

Joseph cited a conflict of interest for the resignation in court documents.

According to the affidavit in support of the motion, “Defendant’s ongoing legal issues are creating a 
conflict of interest for my firm.”

Joseph’s practice, Joseph & Ricker, LLL., is the firm that represents the City of La Grande. Angelika Brooks, assistant to the city manager, said that while Jonel Ricker is the primary city attorney, Joseph is used as needed for backup. Joseph declined to comment on the matter.

Court documents say the defendant “desires to hereinafter appear in propria persona,” or on his own behalf.

Garcia has recently scrutinized the La Grande Police Department, filing complaints on officers with the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training for alleged dishonesty and an alleged racial remark made to Garcia.

Garcia, who hosts “Speak Your Mind,” a talk radio show, is facing a criminal trespassing charge for allegedly entering the home where his ex-girlfriend was living in September. Garcia has said the complainant made a false report. 

He pled not guilty to the charge in court earlier this month.
