Zimmerman’s Lawyers Off the Case


From the Orlando Sentinel:


The two men who have been George Zimmerman’s most outspoken defenders, attorneys Hal Uhrig and Craig Sonner, said today that they’re off the case.

. . .


They said Tuesday that Zimmerman — who, they say, has left the state — has stopped answering their phone calls, and has made a series of decisions that the two lawyers would not have advised.

The lawyers said Zimmerman called Sean Hannity of Fox News without consulting them. He also called the special prosecutor in the case, something the attorneys said they’d never have told him to do.

The special prosecutor refused to speak with Zimmerman without counsel. Hannity’s show tonight will apparently feature something to do with Zimmerman.
