Tom Mesereau, Michael Jackson's lead attorney in last year's child molestation case, has quit his position as Jackson's lawyer.
Mesereau and his partner, Susan Yu, resigned yesterday. They were representing Jackson in his $4M lawsuit brought by Jackson's ex-business partner Marc Schaffel.
However, neither Mesereau nor Yu appeared for Schaffel's deposition last week.
It appears, according to reports, that Mesereau has quit because he is not getting paid.
It is very unwise of Jackson to treat the lawyer, who won the molestation case, in this manner.
