Law & Crime reports:
A Trump campaign lawyer told a federal judge that he can no longer represent the president in a lawsuit challenging Pennsylvania’s election results, saying his legal work was used by President Donald Trump to criminally incite Wednesday’s attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Attorney Jerome M. Marcus on Thursday filed a Motion for Leave to Withdraw as Counsel in the Trump campaign’s action against the Philadelphia County Board of Elections.
Marcus cited to § 1.16(b)(3) and (4) of the Pennsylvania’s Rules of Professional Conduct, informing U.S. District Judge Paul Diamond that his client—the president’s campaign—had “used the lawyer’s services to perpetrate a crime.”
