Attorney Stephane Zerbib with John Galliano

With his pending trial approaching, Galliano is in the news once again–this time for firing his lawyer of seven years because of some suspicious activity with his bank account.

Galliano is set to begin pre-trial hearings this week in Paris. The date of the anticipated trial will be announced May 12th.

Galliano better find a new lawyer fast. We have a feeling the French won’t go easy on him.
