Trump Law Firm Wants Out

( – In a sudden turn of events that could give Democrats ammo ahead of the elections, a New York law firm has signaled its intention to stop representing former President Donald Trump due to strained relations.

According to recently filed court documents, the firm LaRocca, Hornik, Greenberg, Rosen, Kittridge, Carlin, and McPartland noted an “irreparable breakdown in the attorney-client relationship” in its filing with a Manhattan court.

This firm has long represented Trump, especially in a current lawsuit filed by A.J. Delgado, a former senior advisor during Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Delgado alleges she was dismissed after announcing she was pregnant. Although she implicated Trump’s campaign and his former advisers, Reince Priebus and Sean Spicer, in gender and pregnancy discrimination, all parties have denied the charges.

Firm attorney Jared Blumetti cited an “irreparable breakdown in the attorney-client relationship between the Firm and the [Trump] Campaign” as the primary motive.

He requested a private “in camera” session with the court to discuss the reasons for the withdrawal.

Blumetti argued, “It is well-established that a breakdown in the attorney-client relationship is sufficient reason to permit withdrawal, even if the source of the breakdown is disputed and the client opposes the motion to withdraw.”

He further noted that the firm’s exit would “not significantly impact the timing of this proceeding. Indeed, discovery is ongoing, several depositions remain, and the case has not been scheduled for trial.”

In turn, Delgado contested the firm’s motion to withdraw, labeling it a “scheme to avoid compliance.”

Afterward, Judge Katharine H. Parker ruled the firm must continue representing the Trump campaign while scheduling a hearing to dive deeper into the matter with both the firm and the campaign.

Representing herself, Delgado stated in her lawsuit that she was “extremely humiliated, degraded, victimized, embarrassed and emotionally distressed” by the Trump campaign’s treatment after she revealed she was pregnant.

She characterized the discrimination as “malicious, willful, outrageous, and conducted with full knowledge of the law.”
