Following months of poor communication and missed payments, Tekashi 6ix9ine's lawyers intend to resign as his counsel.
According to court documents, Meloni & McCaffrey informed U.S. District Judge Hector Gonzalez of their intention to no longer represent 6ix9ine (a.k.a. Daniel Hernandez). Attorney Robert Meloni described his client's problems, including how he rarely talked with 6ix9ine.
“From June 2021 until March 2022, I had sporadic communications directly with Mr. Hernandez, and mainly communicated with him via texts,” Meloni wrote. “At the beginning of the representation, until March 2022, I communicated almost entirely with Justin Kobay, the business manager for Mr. Hernandez and his companies whenever I needed to consult with someone about this action or the other matters I was handling for Mr. Hernandez. Mr. Kobay would act as a liaison. However, Mr. Kobay resigned as business manager for Mr. Hernandez in March 2022.”
