Ed Hochuli might be getting a taste of NBA action in the near future. The famously muscular NFL referee won’t be trying his hand at officiating on the court, though, as it’s his law degree that is connecting him to an NBA star. Steve Nash has been going through some messy divorce proceedings for quite some time, but now, TMZ is reporting that his ex-wife Alejandra Amarilla Menrath has hired the law firm of Hochuli to represent her in the child custody hearings. The two have been at war over where their kids should live — Phoenix or L.A. — and Menarth has called in the big guns, literally, to help her case. Widely known for his job on the gridiron, Hochuli is also an attorney at the Phoenix law firm Jones, Skelton & Hochuli, P.L.C., but TMZ reports that Hochuli is not expected to personally handle the case.
