Someone Could Really Use Matlock Around Right Now

We don't mean to imply that matters have gotten as bad as they possibly could get for Maurice Clarett just two weeks before his robbery trial ... but they're as bad as they could possibly get.

Clarett yesterday fired his lawyers — including William Settina, famous for defending a man who robbed Kroger stores while wearing a chicken suit — because they "different on his represention." Also, he, uh, hasn't paid them.

This leaves Clarett completely without representation just two weeks before his trial begins. He has not said yet if he's going to represent himself, or what's gonna happen. But yeah. Not good. This is totally going to ruin his Eastern Indoor Football League career.
