Arias' attorney loses law license over book he wrote about the trial

- There are new developments surrounding defense attorney Kirk Nurmi. He's the man who represented convicted killer Jodi Arias.

Now he's agreed to be disbarred rather than have his license suspended for four years, all because he wrote a book about the case, Trapped with Ms. Arias: Part 1 of 3 from Getting the File to Being Ready for Trial.

The state bar claims that in the book, Nurmi detailed confidential conversations between himself and Arias. They say he also revealed evidence that was deemed inadmissible by the judge.

Karen Clark, an attorney representing Arias' interests in this matter released a statement:

"Miss Arias appreciates that the State Bar took this matter seriously, and that Mr. Nurmi has consented to disbarment concerning his misconduct."
 
"The fact that Mr. Nurmi has now been disbarred is appropriate based on his egregious violations of his ethical duties to his former client, Jodi Arias."
