BOISE -- The man who once wanted to buy Tamarack Resort but was instead indicted on federal fraud charges related to the proposed deal is again at odds with an attorney assigned to represent him.
According to U.S. District Court filings, Matthew Hutcheson now wants to represent himself against charges he raided retirement funds he oversaw of some $5 million to help him buy Tamarack, to purchase cars and to fix up his house.
His attorney, Samuel Richard Rubin, said in U.S. District Court documents there is a serious breach of trust between him and Mr. Hutcheson.
Just last year, a judge dismissed Hutcheson's previous lawyer over similar concerns.
At the time, U.S. Magistrate Candy Dale warned Hutcheson she wouldn't entertain repeated requests for new counsel where adequate and competent counsel has been provided.
