Bob Bennett Won't Represent Megaupload Due to Conflict

A bail hearing is about to get started in New Zealand for Kim DotCom and the other Megaupload defendants. While we're waiting, here's some other news: Reuters reports Bob Bennett won't be representing Megaupload because his firm, Hogan Lovell, has a conflict due to representation of another client.

Bennett was working for Megaupload before the website's executives were indicted, said Ira Rothken, one of Megaupload's lawyers. Rothken said Bennett was handling matters other then criminal defense...."Who is or isn't on the criminal defense team is still being decided," Rothken said.
