Great stalling tactic.

Probably not a stalling tactic.

Usually closer to trial when they pull that trick.

More likely disagreements between client and defense team. Happens quite often when the defendant is a lawyer himself, even if he's never tried a criminal case. We had one lawyer here in town (now gone to his reward) who was constantly in trouble but could not keep a lawyer. He wound up representing himself and losing badly.

A word to the wise, John: shut up and let your lawyers do their job. A lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client.

The reason for the switch could not immediately be confirmed. NPR reported that Edwards could not afford the Skadden partners.
