Lawyer Alex Jones who was once called after defending the Proud Boys has asked a request to leave the case and was citing irreconcilable differences with the co-counsel, knowing the fact that he is currently banned from practicing law in his very own home state.
Norm Pattis, who had represented Jones in the libel case was brought by the parents of victims of the massacre at Sandy Hook, this was on the receiving end of Connecticut Judge Barbara Bellis‘ order on suspending his license. Pattis was banned due to his improperly sharing protected information with lawyers for Jones in Texas.
Last Sunday, Pattis filed a motion asking the U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly for an order to allow Pattis to continue representing Joseph Biggs in the Jan. 6 seditious conspiracy case in which he is a co-defendant alongside the Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio and the members Zachary Rehl, Ethan Nordean, and Dominic Pezzola. Norm Pattis disputed that Kelly should decide to allow the lawyer to practice in the District of Columbia federal court, although that legal issue is not completely settled.

On January 9, 2023, the government filed an opposition to any of the motions by the defendants to continue trial or sever defendants as a result of the sixth-month suspension of Lawyer Norman Pattis from the practice of law. Nordean wants the Court to clearly understand his position that he has not moved, nor will he move for a trial continuation. Nordean has been detained pretrial since April 2021 for almost two years. The circumstances wouldn’t prompt Nordean to move or even consent to a trial continuation.
However, the Connecticut suspension was not the only reason why Norm Pattis wanted to leave the case. Pattis said that he has been a gentleman about the situation, and he repeated his opposition that district rules empower Kelly to continue in the federal district for practicing. Norm said the issues that rose recently between the counsel suggested irreconcilable differences between him and Mr. Hull.
Dominic Pezzola’s attorney Richard Root said It’s like an accused rapist being tried by a bunch of rape victims, he describes it with a hypothetical scenario that is not entirely statistically impossible.
