Mike Aguirre's Brother Will Be Unpaid Intern
Gary Aguirre, brother of City Attorney Mike Aguirre, will be an "unpaid intern," says his brother Mike. In an earlier post, I reported that Gary, an experienced lawyer who made a bundle practicing in San Diego, had joined the city attorney's office, but it was not known if he was receiving remuneration. "He is doing misdemeanor stuff -- DUIs," says his brother. I asked why an attorney with such experience, including a highly-publicized stretch at the Securities and Exchange Commission, would want to do misdemeanors. "He just wants to get back in the courtroom," says his brother. Gary Aguirre will be reporting to Chris Morris, who heads the criminal division.
