Kent Schaffer and George Secrest currently represent Stanford, however they claim there is conflict about how Stanford’s case should be tried. The AP reports that Stanford is now asking to be represented by Michael Essmyer and Bob Bennett.
“Mr. Secrest and I believe our strategy in trying the case is important,” Schaffer said. “Mr. Stanford has his own ideas. We’re happy he’s found lawyers who want to do it the way he wants to do it.” A hearing will be held on April 6.
