People with NO influence do not have to concern themselves with appearances of impropiety.
what was he a sort of staff assistant? paper pusher? in any case he was then for three years a substitute judge who as far as we know never heard a case.
Has nothing to do with influence, only with ethics, but I guess you are quite aware of that little fact...

no matter how you parse it carlo is still joran's lawyer and always was.
.Croes said the Dutch teenager has a team of lawyers, so Carlo's removal will not leave van der Sloot without representation. The spokeswoman is not related to Steve Croes
He was interviewing partners for his law firm.
I think being a replacement judge indicates that he heard cases.

HUEZ A NENGA PETICION DI ABOGADO CARLO, DI DECLARA JORAN VAN DER SLOOT COMO NO SOSPECHOSO
ORANJESTAD (AAN): Wednesday, the judge’s decision became known, in the case which attorney Carlo brought forward, representing Joran van der Sloot.
Attorney Antony Carlo started a case a few weeks back, to request that the Public Prosecutor declare that his client Joran van der Sloot is officially no longer a suspect in the case of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, or to instruct the Public Prosecutor to set a period of time within which they have to start a case against his client.
Both petitions were denied by judge Smid of Curacao.
I am aware of what is ethical and what isn't. Did Aruba?
the title is substitute judge. we don't know that he ever heard/read a case.

ARUBA - Paul van der Sloot, the father of Joran van der Sloot has joined the lawyers’ firm of Anthony Carlo and Richie Kock. The Common Court of the Neth.Antilles and Aruba will most probably swear him in next week. Carlo is very pleased: “He is a very skilful jurist. I have received only positive reactions from the professional group.” Van der Sloot was working as a trainee-judge for the Common Court of the Neth.Antilles and Aruba. Before that, he was working at the OM and was chief Legal Matters at the DJZ. Since Van der Sloot has not worked as a lawyer before, Carlo will function as his model for the next three years.

so richie was with the carlo firm and briefly represented joran for the firm in court before moving on. then carlo returned to the case by March 2006 when he unsuccessfully moved in curacao to get Joran off the suspect list.
VAN SUSTEREN: With who? He was practicing, at least with one of Joran's former lawyers. Is that still the arrangement?
