Kris Humphries’ Attorney Drops Him as a Client

Whelp, things aren’t looking good for Kris Humphries divorce case against Kim Kardashian in the marriage that just will not die.

Humphries’ attorney Marshall Waller is telling the judge he wants off the case, and TMZ reports it’s because Waller doesn’t see any way that Kris’s marriage to Kim could be considered fraudulent, and therefore thinks the annulment request  is a waste of time:

Sources connected with Kris tell TMZ … attorney Marshall Waller made it clear to his client … there are NO legal grounds for annulling his marriage to Kim, because there’s absolutely NO evidence of fraud.

Our sources say Waller and Kris reached an impasse … because Kris’ out-of-state attorney, Lee Hutton won’t budge from the whole annulment thing.  So, as TMZ first reported, Waller filed legal docs Thursday asking the judge to get him the hell out of the case.

And get this … In Waller’s motion to be relieved as counsel, he zings Kris by saying they have “irreconcilable differences” — EXACTLY the grounds for a garden-variety divorce.

Today, Waller is scheduled to appear in court against Kim’s attorney, divorce queen Laura Wasser. Wasser is expected to demand a trial start date, possibly as early as next month.  However, it’s possible Waller’s request to drop Kris could delay things even more.  This makes it even more likely that Kris and Kim’s divorce may not be settled by time Kim gives birth to her and Kanye West’s child, which expected mid-summer.
