Courtney Love - Courtney Love's Lawyers Want To Drop Her As Client

Lawyers representing embattled rocker Courtney Love in a legal spat with her former attorneys have asked a Los Angeles judge to release them from the case after losing contact with the star.
The former Hole frontwoman was sued by bosses at Gordon & Holmes last year (11) over claims she damaged the California firm's reputation with comments she allegedly made on Twitter.com.
According to the suit, Love became upset with company partner Rhonda Holmes after she asked the star to refrain from "any and all substance abuse".
The singer allegedly fired her legal team and the attorneys declined to take her back when she later asked for representation. They claim the rocker then posted allegedly libellous statements about the firm, which reportedly harmed Holmes' legal career, on Twitter.
Love hired new attorneys from Pryor Cashman to fight the case on her behalf - but now firm partner James Janowitz has filed a declaration in Los Angeles Superior Court requesting to step down from the battle.
According to the documents, submitted earlier this month (Apr12), Love has failed to pay Pryor Cashman representatives for their work so far and has yet to make a "satisfactory proposal" to settle the debt.
Janowitz also claims the rocker has made their job "impossible" by becoming "completely unresponsive" to attempts to contact her for several months.
Pryor Cashman lawyers are also representing Love in two other legal matters in New York and Janowitz is seeking to remove his firm from those cases too.
Hearings to discuss the motions are scheduled to take place in the Big Apple on Tuesday (24Apr12), while a Los Angeles date has been set for May (12).
