The continuing saga of the aftermath of the TODD SCHNITT-BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE case is in the news yet again with a judge deciding not to postpone the trial in the ethics complaint filed by the FLORIDA BAR against three members of the law firm that successfully defended BUBBA against SCHNITT's lawsuit while an FBI investigation remains ongoing.
STEPHEN DIACO (brother of BUBBA's attorney JOSEPH DIACO), ROBERT ADAMS and ADAM FILTHAUT are accused of having worked with a TAMPA police sergeant to set up SCHNITT's attorney PHIL CAMPBELL for a DUI arrest during the trial. BAY NEWS 9 reports that the judge said in refusing to postpone the action that a trial should be set within six months.
SCHNITT's attorney PHIL CAMPBELL was arrested for a DUI after encountering a legal aide for BUBBA's lawyers who drank with him at a TAMPA restaurant and then asked him to move her car, whereupon he was arrested. Charges were later dropped.
