It’s been a rough week for Kris Humphries who’s been divorced by his own divorce lawyer who cited “irreconcilable differences” to sever their professional relationship as it pertains to trying the ongoing case.
It’s been established over a year-and-a-half that Humphries planned to get an annulment on the grounds of fraud because he doesn’t believe in divorce. At least, that’s his story and he’s sticking to it as plans to get the marriage annulled fall apart.
Earlier this week, TMZ.com reported that Laura Wasser filed a legal complaint that Humphries and local lawyer Lee Hutton were exploiting the legal system to punish Kim Kardashian, who’s expecting her first child with Kanye West (with whom she’s been cheated for years, cheating on various boyfriends, which is why he wasn’t at her second wedding). Wasser complains that Hutton ignored the separation and has been focusing his attention on exposing the reality show.
And apparently Humphries’ sponsor lawyer, Marshall Waller, agrees that the case is baloney because Waller filed his own documents quitting and citing “irremediable breakdown of the attorney-client relationship.” TMZ adds, Waller thinks the annulment is bull but Humphries nor Hutton will listen to reason and just agree to a divorce.
Even Kris Humphries’ soon-to-be ex-lawyer thinks Kris is abusing the legal system by fighting for an annulment from Kim Kardashian.
Attorney Marshall Waller made it clear to his client there are no legal grounds for annulling his marriage to Kim, because there’s absolutely no evidence of fraud.
Waller and Kris reached an impasse because Kris’ out-of-state attorney, Lee Hutton, won’t budge from the whole annulment thing. So… Waller filed legal documents Thursday asking the judge to get him the hell out of the case.
And get this… In Waller’s motion to be relieved as counsel, he [says] they have “irreconcilable differences” [which is] the grounds for a garden-variety divorce.
Lawyers for Kim and Kris are in court this morning… Kim’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, will demand a trial date as early as next month. [But] will Kris argue that since he just lost his California lawyer, he needs more time? If the judge buys Kris’ rather lame argument, it will be the 4th time the judge would have delayed the trial for a 72-day marriage that effectively ended nearly a year-and-a-half ago. - via TMZ.
