Kris Humphries' Lawyer

Kris' Annulment Claim


2/15/2013 4:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Even Kris Humphries' soon-to-be ex-lawyer thinks Kris is abusing the legal system by fighting for an annulment from Kim Kardashian ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with Kris tell TMZ ... attorney Marshall Waller made it clear to his client ... there are NO legal grounds for annulling his marriage to Kim, because there's absolutely NO evidence of fraud.

Our sources say Waller and Kris reached an impasse ... because Kris' out-of-state attorney, Lee Hutton won't budge from the whole annulment thing.  So, as TMZ first reported, Waller filed legal docs Thursday asking the judge to get him the hell out of the case.

And get this ... In Waller's motion to be relieved as counsel, he zings Kris by saying they have "irreconcilable differences" -- EXACTLY the grounds for a garden-variety divorce. 

One final thing ... lawyers for Kim and Kris are in court this morning, and as we previously reported, Kim's lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, will demand a trial date as early as next month.  The question now -- will Kris argue that since he just lost his California lawyer, he needs more time? 

If the judge buys Kris' rather lame argument, it will be the 4th time the judge would have delayed the trial for a 72-day marriage that effectively ended nearly a year-and-a-half ago.

Unsound Mind: If either party is of “unsound mind” or unable to understand the nature of the marriage or domestic partnership, the marriage is voidable. But if the party of unsound mind, after coming to reason, freely cohabited with the other as husband and wife, then the marriage is valid.

Fraud: If either party got married or registered the domestic partnership due to fraud, the marriage is voidable. The fraud must be vital to the relationship and the party deceived was affected by the fraud. But if the deceived party has full knowledge of the facts constituting the fraud and freely cohabited with the other as husband and wife, the marriage is valid.

Irreconcilable Differences: When spouses cannot agree on fundamental issues and believe they will never come to terms with their differences. AKA No-fault divorce.
After 72 long days Kim filed for divorce from Kris, citing irreconcilable differences. Kim released the following statement to E, 'After careful consideratiion, I have decided to end my marriage.' She went on to say, 'this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes don't work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.'

On K&KTM Kim admits her marriage to Kris was a mistake and she should have listened to her gut. (Side note - On K&KTM Jonathan told Khloe if he wants to know what is going on in Kim's life he goes to TMZ.)

Let us not forget Kim's ex-husband, music producer Damon Thomas. In 2010, Damon gave an interview to In Touch magazine. He said, "She can't write or sing or dance, so she does harmful things to validate herself in the media."

Kim, listen to Kanye and give Kris an annulment.

So sick of the entire Humphries bashing, if you really believe their marriage was legit and not done for the show and ratings you’re crazy. Reality show, what a joke. This is the most scripted BS I’ve ever seen. Got to give them credit they’re bringing in the ratings and making the money. Of course Kim won’t admit it was a fraud that would destroy her empire and all those delusional fans that think it’s the real deal. The only mistake the Hump made was getting involved with this lunatic to begin with.

After this event, any person who choses this lawyer is retarded.

How long was did Kris have this Lawyer ? Did he just decide, once they are getting ready for trial, there was no grounds for fraud ? Really ? He took Kris' money for the last 18 months. There is a special place in hell for a$$holes like his lawyer.
