Re: AMC Publishing, Inc.
Dear Mr. McGarry:
Please accept this letter as formal notice this office represents AMC Publishing and many of its past and present employees.
I have great difficulty in understanding why the Clearwater Police Department and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement thought it necessary to serve two subpoenas on AMC Publishing, when the agents who served these subpoenas were well aware that this office represented AMC Publishing, Inc. and a number of its employees.
I have great difficulty understanding why this was done, in particular since we had been cooperating with these law enforcement agencies and I have produced without subpoena a number of employees for the interview process.
Please accept this letter as my formal notice to the State that the undersigned attorney will accept subpoenas in behalf of AMC Publishing and the various employees represented by this office. Detective Carrasquillo has a list of those I represent.
I have great concerns that the Clearwater Police Department may have an agenda of which I have not been advised. One detective told me he had been advised by the State Attorney's Office that a subpoena was not binding if served upon a lawyer. Sharon Feola advised me on March 21, 1997 that the "investigation was expanding." She further advised that I was going to be sorry that I became involved in this investigation.
I would truly appreciate your advisin what Feola's statement means.
RONALD K. CACCIATORE
