Mark Geragos

CNN cut ties with celebrity attorney Mark Geragos on Monday after he was named as a co-conspirator in Michael Avenatti’s criminal complaint.

Mark Geragos regularly appeared on CNN as a legal analyst, however a spox for the network confirmed on Monday that Geragos is no longer a contributor.

Mark Geragos is known for legally representing former Congressman Gary Condit, SJW Colin Kaepernick, hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett and murderer Scott Peterson, to name a few.

Creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti was arrested on Monday in New York on federal extortion charges.

Michael Avenatti and an unnamed co-conspirator were accused of trying to extort $20+ million from Nike.

According to the complaint, Avenatti threatened to hold a press conference to announce misconduct by Nike unless the athletic apparel company hired Avenatti and his co-conspirator to conduct an internal investigation for over $20 million.

Although the co-conspirator was not named in the criminal complain against Avenatti, The Wall Street Journal reported that Avenatti’s co-conspirator is celebrity attorney and CNN legal analyst Mark Geragos.

It is unclear whether Geragos has been charged by the feds or is cooperating with investigators.
