Mark O’Mara Out as George Zimmerman’s Attorney for Any Future Litigation Except for Pending Defmation Law Suit Against NBC
Defense attorney Mark O’Mara stated today that he will not represent George Zimmerman in any future litigation, including his divorce or any possible charges stemming from yesterday’s altercation between George and his estranged wife Shellie. However, O’Mara will represent Zimmerman in the pending litigation defamation law suit against NBC. Mark O’Mara successfully defended George Zimmerman on murder charges for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in garnering a “not guilty” verdict.
Isn’t it amazing that O’Mara who blasted the media for their PR vendetta against his client George Zimmerman now has accepted a job as a media analyst?
George Zimmerman’s lawyer said today he will no longer represent the man acquitted of murder in the death of teenager Trayvon Martin, even as police say that Zimmerman or his wife could face charges over Monday’s domestic dispute.
Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, made the announcement one day after Shellie Zimmerman called police to say that George had assaulted her father and threatened her, leaving her “very, very scared.”
Police said today they are still investigating the incident and that either George or his wife Shellie Zimmerman could eventually face charges.
Investigators are trying to watch video of the conflict captured on Shellie Zimmerman’s iPad, which was broken into pieces. The iPad is being looked at by forensic examiners who hope to see what happened during the conflict, police said at a news conference today.
A spokesman for Mark O’Mara, who succeeded in winning an acquittal for Zimmerman in the racially charged Trayvon Martin murder trial, said O’Mara will not represent Zimmerman in any future litigation including his divorce and any possible charges resulting from the Monday incident involving his wife and father-in-law.
O’Mara will still be Zimmerman’s lawyer in a defamation suit pending against NBC and in the remaining motions stemming from the Trayvon Martin trial, including a motion to reimburse Zimmerman’s attorneys and a motion to censure the prosecution.
O’Mara just recently accepted a job as a legal analyst on CNN. As reported at Mediaite, at a press conference following Zimmerman’s arrest Monday night, O’Mara was asked if he had any advice for the former defendant. “Pay me,” O’Mara said.
