PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The mayor of Philadelphia drew some special attention when he named three lawyers he said owed more than $350,000 combined in back taxes, interest and penalties.

Mayor Michael Nutter held a news conference Wednesday on the sidewalk in front of the lawyers' offices, a 2-minute walk from City Hall. He said if they don't pay by April 2 their business assets will be seized and sold by the sheriff.

He seemed surprised when one of the lawyers confronted him.

In front of a camera for WCAU-TV, attorney Robert Gamburg said he was trying to work out a payment plan. He asked Nutter why he and the other two lawyers were being singled out from all the thousands of delinquent taxpayers.

The mayor said to Gamburg, "Pay your taxes and everything will be fine."
