The man accused of killing CashApp founder Bob Lee just saw his defense lawyer leave the case
- Nima Momeni, who has pleaded not guilty in the murder of Bob Lee, has parted ways with his lawyer.
- Paula Canny, who'd represented Momeni, withdrew from the case, according to multiple reports.
Canny did not respond on Tuesday to Insider's messages left with her office, or to emails seeking comment.
Momeni also has new lawyers now representing him: Saam Zangeneh, a criminal defense attorney in Miami, confirmed to Insider that he is representing Momeni along with Bradford Cohen, a criminal defense attorney in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Cohen also confirmed his role in the case to Insider, but declined to comment further.
Representatives for the San Francisco District Attorney's office did not immediately respond to Insider's emailed inquiries on Tuesday.
In April, San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins said that Momeni had been charged with murder and "that he personally used a deadly weapon (knife) in the commission of this crime."
Momeni's not-guilty plea is fairly common in the early stage of proceedings involving a murder charge.
The court proceedings, which have so far been marked by some delays and postponed hearings, have a ways to go as both sides work to shore up their case. Defense attorneys also often conduct their own inquiry into the facts of the case in order to develop defenses.
