Lumumba withdraws from case for health reasons

Quoting Starkville Daily News

Judge Lee Howard allowed Chokwe Lumumba and Imhotep Alkebu-lan to withdraw from Quinn’s defense, citing health concerns Lumumba presented to him.

“I believe the documents support the health issues and medical regimen and issues would require that the court sustain his (Lumumba’s) motion to withdraw,” Howard said.

Lumumba presented medical documentation- which Howard placed under seal- and noted he needed to have a “serious medical examination” in Jackson during the week of the trial.”
