Ed Jew's attorney files motion to quit

Attorney Bill Fazio filed a motion this morning in San Francisco Superior Court asking to withdraw himself as counselor for Supervisor Ed Jew's San Francisco criminal case.

Jew is facing nine felony charges in connection with alleged violations of the city election code. There is a question of whether Jew actually lives in the district that he represents, and whether he misrepresented his residence in candidate nominating documents, according to San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris.

A court date for Jew's criminal charges was postponed until Oct. 26, because Fazio needed more time to review the evidence.

A hearing is scheduled Friday morning in Superior Court to formalize the motion, according to a court clerk.
