Joshua Kutnick, the attorney representing William Balfour who is accused of killing Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew, has just stepped down from the case. Kutnick withdrew from Balfour’s case because of the intense hours involved and Balfour’s lack of funds to support the case, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Kutnick still believes in Balfour’s innocence and is preparing to turn over his resources to Balfour’s next attorney, appointed by the public defender’s office.—WLW
