Gosselin's Lawyer Formally Up a Creek

10/21/2009 1:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jon Gosselin may be on the hunt for a new lawyer soon, because we've learned the person who sponsored New York attorney Mark Heller to appear on Gosselin's behalf in Pennsylvania has formally made a motion with the court to withdraw his support.

Attorney Mike Marino filed his motion today, saying he wants to wash his hands of the whole case. Marino told us he had never had contact with Heller until Mr. Heller found him in a legal directory, cold called him and asked Marino to sponsor him for a one-time-only case -- Jon vs. Kate.

Marino says he had never heard of "Jon & Kate Plus 8" when he agreed to sponsor Heller. As Marino put it, "I don't watch that kind of junk on TV."

The judge will schedule a hearing on Marino's motion. We also learned Marino sent the judge a letter last week requesting out of the whole case.

If Heller doesn't find a new sponsor, he can't practice in PA.

Stay tuned ...

Seriously, after watching that 'lawyer' on Larry King I too thought Jon needed to have better representation. That guy was a fool.

Ugh    

Is the same Michael Marino that was former DA and Commissioner of Montgomery County? If so, I can't imagine he would stoop the Gosselin level.

Why did Kate act like a bitch and bossed Jon around all those years?
It's because she had no choice. He'a an idiot with poor judgement.

Only a moron would hire a lawyer outside of his state.

I remember when TMZ reported on this last week, except now the attorney has filed a paper with the Court to get out of this whole mess. Cough up more of Kate's money Jon, you're gonna need a new lawyer.
