Gloria Allred lost Summer Zervos' slander against President Trump, a few days after Allred and Zervos were defeated when a Manhattan judge turned down Trump's motion to dismiss the case.
The famous lawyer retired from the case in a court case on Thursday, listing Marianne Wang as a lawyer for Zervos on the case. Wang's company had completed most of the legal work in this case, the Associated Press reported.
On Friday, neither Allred nor Wang would comment on the departure, except for a statement made available to the press.
"Our withdrawal has nothing to do with the merits of their case against President Trump," Allred said. "We will not comment on the reasons for our company's withdrawal, and we wish Summers all the best for their quest for justice."
Wang thanked Allred, an outspoken critic of Trump, and her company, "for their whole Work on this important case ".
"My company will continue to represent Ms. Zervos," Wang said. "We look forward to proving their claim."
Meanwhile, Zervos has made his own statement.
"For personal reasons, I chose to separate myself from Gloria Allred, since she has nothing to do with her work, lawyer," Zervos said. "I look forward to having my day in court with my current legal department."
She concluded, "I will not comment further on this matter."
During a December hearing, Wang said, "was not above the law." She offered Trump in Mar-a-Lago "between rounds of the Gulf."
A month later, Allred told the Daily Beast that Zervos Defamation proceedings against the Commander-in-Chief "Will be a battle."
When asked about Trump's defense of the First Amendment, Allred said, "The reason we filed this lawsuit is because we believe the truth counts."
