Mark O’Mara, one half of the defense team that helped George Zimmerman beat a murder charge this summer, is calling it quits when it comes to representing the former neighborhood watch volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin.
After news of the domestic dispute George and his estranged wife, Shellie, were involved in on Monday, we all expected the now high-profile lawyer to make his case for his client, but he told his new employer, CNN, that that isn’t happening.
“I am not representing George Zimmerman in his recent domestic altercation case or his impending divorce case,” O’Mara told CNN.
But he won’t be able to divorce himself from the Zimmerman drama just yet.
O’Mara, now a legal analyst for CNN, continues to be the attorney of record in the impending defamation lawsuit against NBC; Pennsylvania attorney Jim Beasley will be the lead attorney on the case.
He will also still be involved with outstanding sanction motions and recovery of costs from the state of Florida for expenses related to Zimmerman’s murder trial.
