John Galliano's Lawyer Has Been "Dismissed"

The latest twist in the Galliano tale: his lawyer, Stephane Zerbib, who has represented him up until now has been fired. A report first surfaced that Zerbib has quit (a number of reasons were cited), but Galliano's rep came forward to correct the rumor, stating that Zerbib was fired after "apparent irregularities" were found in their financial sector that related to the lawyer. The rep told Vogue:

"Mr Zerbib was dismissed as Galliano's lawyer some weeks ago following the discovery of apparent irregularities in respect of his firms administration of Galliano's financial affairs over a number of years."
Galliano's pre-trial hearings will begin next week in Paris, and he will now be represented by Aurélien Hamelle from the Paris-based firm named Metzner Associés.
