Case Number: BC587724    Hearing Date: January 17, 2020    Dept: 26

Defense counsel, Amy Lee Stalling and Phillip Wendel Boesch, Jr. (“Counsel”), move to be relieved as counsel for Defendant Zeta Graff (“Client”). On January 3, 2020, Counsel filed the instant motion to be relieved as counsel.

Counsel have filed a form MC-051 and MC-052 and have lodged with the Court a copy of the proposed order on form MC-053 pursuant to CRC Rule 3.1362.

The MC-052 form states that Counsel served Client via mail at Client’s last known mailing address, which Counsel state they have confirmed as current within 30 days of the motion through conversation and representations made in filings to the Bankruptcy Court in ongoing Chapter 11 proceedings

Counsel state that they should be permitted to withdraw because Client has breached an agreement or obligation as to expenses or fees under R. Prof. Conduct 3-700(C)(l)(f) and because Client’s conduct has rendered it unreasonably difficult for counsel to carry out the employment effectively under R. Prof. Conduct 3-700(C)(l)(d).

Counsel are ordered to appear at the hearing and submit a corrected proposed order on form MC-053. Based on the notice of motion and the declaration filed by Counsel, the Court is inclined to grant the motion. However, the proposed order lodged with the Court has not been properly completed. Counsel must submit a revised proposed order at or before the hearing on this motion. The proposed order must identify all upcoming hearings and list the address of the Court in all items. The Court’s records show the following upcoming hearings, which must all be listed in the revised proposed order:


[1] In a separate minute order, the Court has on its own motion advanced this hearing from September 22, 2020 in light of the age of this case.

[2] In a separate minute order, the Court has on its own motion advanced this hearing from October 6, 2020 in light of the age of this case.
