Womans lawyer withdraws from restraining order case

Steve LynnVail, CO Colorado

EAGLE, Colorado Edwards attorney Rohn Robbins said Monday he will withdraw from a case in which his client, Alison Miller, filed a temporary restraining order against state House candidate Muhammad Ali Hasan.Robbins filed a motion Monday in Eagle County Court to withdraw from the case, but he declined to say why, citing attorney-client privilege. I cant really tell you anything more substantive than there was a conflict, Robbins said. On March 3, Miller filed a temporary restraining against Hasan alleging that the Beaver Creek Republican harassed her. Greg Daniels, Hasans Denver-based defense attorney, has denied the allegations. Hasan is running to represent Eagle County in House District 56 and Miller was his girlfriend and publicist.A court hearing to decide whether to grant a permanent restraining order was scheduled for Wednesday. For now, Hasan cannot be within 100 yards of Miller or her children and must stay away from her home and workplace, according to the order. He can be jailed if he violates it.Jesse Wiens of Avon-based Fahrenholtz Carey & Wiens said he has agreed to represent Miller. On Wednesday, Wiens said he will ask a judge to reschedule the hearing for a permanent order because Miller only hired him Monday.Staff Writer Steve Lynn can be reached at 748-2931 or slynn@vaildaily.com.
