George Zimmerman Attorneys Drop Him As a Client, Contact With Fox News Cited as Breach

In a surprise press conference this afternoon, the attorneys for George Zimmerman, the man accused of killing Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, announced that they are dropping him as a client after “losing contact” with him.

Their presser was carried live on CNN and MSNBC, though not on Fox News, which chose to cover the stock market instead. MSNBC pulled away after just a couple of minutes, while CNN stayed with the attorneys.

Interestingly, Fox News came up in the attorney’s discussion, as they say that Zimmerman  reached out to FNC’s Sean Hannity on his own, as well as the special prosecutor, without consulting them. They had been in New York last week taking meetings with media organizations on his behalf.

“We learned that he had called Sean Hannity of Fox News directly, and I can’t confirm this, we believe he spoke directly with Sean off the record, and he’s not willing to tell us what our client told him.”
