Not a Problem I Have

One of the nice things about being a public defender is that you don't have to worry about getting paid by your clients. When you do, sometimes weird things happen (via Concurring Opinions):

Oklahoma County District Judge Tammy Bass-LeSure last week allowed Ersland, 57, of Chickasha to be released on $100,000 bail but she banned him from any access to weapons. The hearing today was to see if he had complied with her order.

Ersland told the judge he no longer owns the weapons. Defense attorney Irven Box said he took the weapons and other personal property from Ersland as payment of part of the attorney fees in the case.
Box said he's taken barter as payment before, including comic books. I wonder if he's got a barter to dollars conversion chart in his office?
