Another change of counsel for Tommy Garrett

The man suing a Charlottesville weekly newspaper for defamation has parted ways with attorney James Creekmore of Daleville, reports the defendant publication, The Hook.

Apparently, Garrett — a sort of would-be celebrity — changes lawyers the way some of us change socks.  The newspaper recounts a number of attorneys who have represented the publicist and author.

Garrett’s current suit claims he was defamed by an article in The Hook.  The case gained attention in free speech and blogger circles when Creekmore, on behalf of Garrett, subpoenaed records of comments posted on a Charlottesville-related blog.  The ACLU and others are fighting that subpoena.
