Lawyer for Dwyane Wade's ex-wife exits case

Associated Press Published: July 16, 2012

CHICAGO (AP) — The ex-wife of Miami Heat star Dwayne Wade will be getting another lawyer to represent her in a protracted divorce and child-custody battle with the NBA star.

A Chicago judge on Monday ruled a lawyer for Siohvaughn (shuh-VON') Funches-Wade can quit.

Attorney Michael Haber filed a motion last week saying his relationship with Funches-Wade had reached a point where he can no longer represent her.

Cook County Circuit Judge Marya Nega ruled for Haber despite Funches-Wade's claim it would be expensive for her to hire another lawyer. However, when the judge asked if she was prepared to find her 13th attorney, she replied: "Yes."

Funches-Wade is accused of child abduction for allegedly failing to return their sons to Wade in a timely manner over the Father's Day weekend.
