Earlier this week, it was reported that Justin Johnson -- who is facing first-degree murder charges in the death of Young Dolph -- hired attorney Arthur Horne.
Horne is associated with Yo Gotti and represented Blac Youngsta when Youngsta had the charges he shot up Young Dolph's car dismissed in 2017.
This had folks questioning whether Johnson was being supported by Gotti, who has a long history of beef with Dolph.
Now Horne is no longer representing Johnson.

Straight Drop (Justin Johnson) needs a new lawyer. Art Horne just told me Drop got dropped. Horne confirmed he is not representing anyone associated with the Young Dolph murder case. pic.twitter.com/wbUSyB8RyX
No word on why Horne dropped Johnson, but there could have been a conflict of interest.
