Jailed attorney Marc S. Dreier is seeking an exception to a freeze on his assets that will leave him enough money to cover defense costs in what the government says is a $380 million fraud case. Defense lawyer Gerald Shargel added that he may need to "engage professionals who will aid me in my effort," but didn't comment on whether he would try to present a defense of insanity or diminished capacity.
