The lawyer who first represented David Hasselhoff's ex-wife Pamela Bach in her divorce battle against the actor is suing for unpaid legal fees.
Attorney Gary Mitchell claims he represented the actress for six months last year (06), before Bach began using the services of lawyer Debra Opri.
Mitchell filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday (23Aug07), demanding $40,000 (GBP20,000) in unpaid fees.
Court papers say Mitchell and Bach had an oral agreement over his representation of her.
Meanwhile, the same day Mitchell sued Bach, a Los Angeles judge ruled Hasselhoff would not have to pay $189,000 (GBP94,500) in legal fees charged by Opri while she was representing his ex.
Bach fired Opri after losing custody of her two daughters to Hasselhoff in June (07) and has since hired Mark Vincent Kaplan as her attorney.
