Bill Cosby, who is working on appealing his case while he serves time in Pennsyvania, is parting ways with Pennsylvania-based attorney Joseph Green Jr., The New York Post’s Page Six reports.
Green, “who represented the entertainer-turned-inmate at his sentencing, filed papers Friday indicating he wishes to withdraw from the 81-year-old’s case,” The Post reports, adding: “Cosby — now known as inmate No. NN7687 at State Correctional Institution Phoenix — will now continue his appeal process repped by lawyers Brian W. Perry and Kristen L. Weisenberger.”
The report adds: “It wasn’t immediately clear if Cosby, who has been behind bars since he was sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison on Sept. 25, fired Green — or if Green resigned.”
The move requires the approval of Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill.
