George Zimmerman’s lawyers have withdrawn from the case:
Apparently George Zimmerman called Sean Hannity on his own, and hasn’t told his lawyers what they talked about.
In their announcement, they’re clearly agitated by Zimmerman’s media strategy (namely, the fact that he’s been talking publicly at all).
“It’s his right to talk to whoever he wants to…”
The lawyers have left the door open to future representation if he comes back to them.
The lawyers are making clear that Zimmerman hasn’t fled. They have a pretty good idea where he is, they say.
It really does seem to come down to the fact that the lawyers can’t represent a guy who’s not talking to his lawyers, but IS communicating through the media without consultation.
On George Zimmerman setting up his own website: “I wish he would have told me.”
Can’t say I blame them.
Update: Doug Mataconis does blame them for holding a press conference and revealing information they should have kept to themselves.
