Now that George Zimmerman would not be getting paid in a so-called “celebrity” boxing match, his attorney O’Mara has announced that he will not be representing Trayvon Martin’s killer in an upcoming lawsuit against NBC.
A spokesperson for O’Mara, who is a CNN legal analyst, confirmed to HLN Thursday that O’Mara will no longer be the local counsel on record for Zimmerman’s libel lawsuit against NBC.
O’Mara similarly told CNN in September that he wouldn’t be representing Zimmerman in his impending divorce case or the domestic altercation case against him at the time. Zimmerman’s girlfriend had accused him of pointing a shotgun at her, but then later changed her story, saying the incident never happened. Florida State Attorney Phil Archer announced in December that no assault or domestic violence charges would be filed against Zimmerman.+0
