Milo Yiannopoulos has fired his attorneys deciding to defend himself in a legal case against Simon & Schuster publishing house. As Milo’s attorney cited that there were “irreconcilable differences” between himself and his client, the right-wing troll decided he did not need such a lawyer. The lawyer confirmed that his relationships with Milo turned “untenable” after the pair had a “fundamental disagreement”. A statement read that Yiannopoulos’ “lack of cooperation rendered his attorney’s representation “unreasonable difficult to carry out effectively”. Yiannopoulos, who was a former editor at Breitbart, claimed that the source of “disagreement” between him and his attorney’s stemmed from Simon & Schuster’s discovery tactics. “We asked that all pertinent documents be open to the public record,” Yiannopoulos wrote. “But Simon & Schuster demanded that virtually all of the documents in the lawsuit remain confidential, and had them classified “attorney’s eyes only”. This meant that he might be unaware about all the evidence against him in the case.
