NO USE BOSTON AND LOS ANGELES MEDIA MARKET WEBSITES**~ Actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli appeared at a Boston federal court on Tuesday to settle a dispute over their legal counsel in the largest college admissions scandal in U.S. history The "Full House" star and her husband are both represented by the law firm Latham & Watkins… The two were in court to acknowledge the risks posed by having the same lawyers, but, in the end, the couple agreed to continue using the same legal team.

Prosecutors claimed a possible conflict of interest with the firm, which recently represented the University of Southern California, where the couple is alleged to have paid bribes in order to get their two daughters in.

Loughlin and Giannulli are among 51 people charged with participating in a scheme where wealthy parents conspired to use bribery and other forms of fraud to get their children admitted to top universities.

(broll of rick singer) Prosecutors claim they did so with the help of Rick Singer, a California college admissions consultant who pleaded guilty to funneling bribes to coaches and paying proctors through his non-profit organization.

They allege that Loughlin and Giannulli agreed to pay $500,000 dollars to have their two daughters named as recruits to USC's crew team even though they did not row competitively.

The couple has pleaded not guilty.

But 15 other parents have agreed to plead guilty, including Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman, who admitted to having paid $15,000 dollars to have someone secretly correct her daughter's S-A-T answers.

She is scheduled to be sentenced on September 13th.
