60. You're taught in law school that all clients, including those accused of murder,

deserve the best defense that his or her lawyers can mount.

It isn't easy for an attorney to remove him or herself from representing someone with whom the lawyer has a representation agreement. The agreement is often verbal for a bit and then reduced to writing.

Finding that your client is guilty is not a reason for which attorneys may recuse (?--I just got off the phone from an hour chatting with my Mom and I'm finding the Kenwood 2010 Sonoma Chardonnay to taste particularly good--she's 90, god bless her, but sometimes old themes in our relationship reprise themselves to the detriment of who we are today, but I digress) him or herself.

Zimmerman's lawyers are resigning because their client will not cooperate with them and had told the prosecutor, Ms. Corey, that those guys do not represent him, but are legal advisors, sort of like the status of court-appointed attorneys to a pro se (representing him or herself) defendant.

If all of this sounds nuts to you, it sounds nuts to Zimmerman's former attorneys because in their press conference (which I see as partially as a call for Zimmerman to come in from the cold (or the hot since Z may still be in the South), because the attorneys said that they thought that Zimmerman may have cracked from the shock of the shooting, the seclusion, the bounty on his head, and the media spectacular led by Rev. Al Sharpton, with whom I often agree generally but who has left a bad taste in my mouth after the Tawana Bradley circus.
