Linda Bolton's attorney tries to resign, judge says no

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - One of Linda Bolton's new attorneys tried to resign, but the judge has denied that request.

Attorney Lisa Ross filed a motion Friday asking to be removed as counsel. Ross said she has not received adequate time to prepare for the Sept. 12 trial.

Ross was hired by Linda Bolton in early August after Bolton's previous attorneys, Jim Dukes and Bud Holmes were disqualified.

On Thursday morning, Federal Judge Keith Starrett denied Ross's motion.

Linda Bolton is the wife of Forrest County Chief Deputy Charles Bolton. The Boltons have been indicted for felony tax evasion.
