Lawrence O'Donnell has hinted that this might be the reason for today's press conference and it makes sense to me.
The special prosecutor has announced to the press that she is going to hold a press conference within 72 hours. That came out today.
She probably reached out to his lawyers to contact them before going public.
They tried to get in touch with Zimmerman.
Zimmerman stiffs them.
They start thinking that George might be thinking of fleeing.
If they have a client who flees after the prosectuor tips them off that the decision is coming soon, they could be accomplices to a fugitive and lose their law licenses. That's why they hold today's press conference. (They probably email Zimmerman and say we are talking today at 2PM, you need to contact us as a way to pressure him. He stiffs them again)
They tell the world they are dropping him as a client.
