Deppisch’s resubmission of pre-trial fees
Attorney-at-Law Dr. Aug. Deppisch
Upper District Court and District Court of Munich I and II
Munich, [date illegible]
/Stamp: People’s Court, May 7, 1943/
To the 1st Senate of the People’s Court, Berlin W9, Bellevuestr. 15
Regarding: Criminal case against Schmorell Alexander et al, for preparation for high treason
Here: Request for reimbursement of costs as defense counsel for the accused Huber Kurt, Bauer Helmut and Schüddekopf Katharina. 6J 24/43 – 1H 101/43.
On April 22, 1943 I issued an invoice for the pre-trial proceedings in accordance with §67, [illegible], since I visited both of the accused Huber Kurt and Bauer Helmut in prison immediately following my appointment as their court-appointed defense counsel on April 14, 1943. Following [that visit], I filed a written report. However, since the trial date had already been set at that time, the accounting office struck those charges.
However for reasons of fairness I herewith request that the charges for pre-trial proceedings be remitted, since I undertook their defense without delay.
Editor’s note: Date is established from Deppisch’s follow-up letter on June 23, 1943.
