Re: When did you make the move to Cambodia?

Almost 25 years ago (it was late 1996 or early 1997). Still had a bit of a wild west feel back then.

Re: "The Most Powerful American in Cambodia", BRETTON SCIARONI Has Died

Apparently he was still licensed by the District of Columbia Bar Association, though he is listed by them as having "inactive attorney" status....

Re: "The Most Powerful American in Cambodia", BRETTON SCIARONI Has Died

I'm not sure why all of the articles and posts refer to him as an "American lawyer." When was the last time he actually had an active American law license?

No, I passed my bar exam on the first attempt (with 19 points to spare).

Re: The Most Powerful American in Cambodia BRETTON SCIARONI Reportedly Died

I knew him primarily from the old Martinis (1990s). We would always share our frightening memories of taking our respective bar exams (attorney admission exams).

depositing a stimulus check......

I tried depositing my stimulus check into my Canadia bank account but they told me they no longer accept foreign checks of any kind. Is there any bank in Phnom Penh where I could open an account and then deposit the stimulus check? It is not an emergency or anything like that.
