VIERA (CBSMiami/AP) — One of the best known astronauts in U.S. history needs a new lawyer.
One of former astronaut Buzz Aldrin’s attorneys in a legal fight with two of his children and a business manager is withdrawing, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
Attorney Steven Selz last week filed court papers in state court in Florida seeking to withdraw from the case.
The lawyer says he and Aldrin have “irreconcilable differences” that have made it improper for him to represent the Apollo 11 moonwalker.
Court documents show that two other attorneys remain on behalf of Aldrin.
Aldrin sued two of his children and a business manager in June, accusing them of misusing his credit cards, transferring money from an account, and slandering him by saying he has dementia.
Earlier, the two children had filed a petition claiming their father was suffering from memory loss, delusions, paranoia and confusion.
