Irby rehires fired lawyer

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT)--New This Morning!  Karen Irby has now rehired the lawyer she claimed represented her improperly.

This is the same lawyer that represented her when she pleaded guilty in a 2009 crash that killed two doctors.

Joe Hollomon represented Irby when she pleaded guilty to two counts of culpable negligence manslaughter in the deaths of doctors Mark Pogue and Lisa Dedousis.

Back in May, Irby hired Ridgeland attorney, William Bell, and alleged that Holloman had a conflict of interest because he also represented her husband, Stuart Irby.

But on July 1st, Irby signed a court document terminating Bell's services without explanation.
