Andrew Thomas' lawyers ask to withdraw from ethics case

Posted: Updated:

Former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas' lawyers have asked to withdraw from his ethics disciplinary case for fear they won't be paid.

Donald Wilson, Jr., Terrence P. Woods and Brian Holohan submitted the motion to withdraw Wednesday. William O'Neil, presiding disciplinary judge of the Supreme Court of Arizona, still must rule on the motion.

According to the court document, "only a portion of the legal bills generated have been paid, a substantial amount remains outstanding and unpaid, and the lawyers have not received any indication or assurance that the fees and costs will be paid."

Thomas has been charged with an ethics violation by an independent investigator on behalf of the State Bar of Arizona. He face possible disbarment.

The trial is set to begin Sept. 12.
