Tentative Rulings

Case Number: ****0735    Hearing Date: November 01, 2019    Dept: 26

Plaintiff counsel, Steven B Lehat (“Counsel”) moves to be relieved as counsel for Plaintiffs Cheryl Conhaim and her heirs and successors (“Client”). The Court heard Counsel’s motion on October 4, 2019. The Court continued the motion to November 1, 2019, to allow Counsel, if Counsel is also moving to withdraw as counsel of record for Cheryl Conhaim in her capacity as Cross-Defendant, to file amended forms MC-051, MC-052, and MC-053 by October 18, 2019, to make clear that Counsel is seeking to withdraw as counsel for Cheryl Conhaim both in her capacity as Plaintiff and also in her capacity as Cross-Defendant. (Minute Order, 10/04/19.) The Court ordered Counsel to file and serve, no later than October 18, 2019, a supplemental declaration setting forth all efforts to identify and serve Plaintiff’s heirs and representatives of the estate with notice of this order. (Minute Order, 10/04/19.)

Counsel has timely filed amended forms MC-051, MC-052, and MC-053 identifying his withdrawal as counsel for Client as plaintiff and cross-defendant. Counsel’s amended declaration states: “Client cannot be served; she is deceased; counsel has notified all parties known to have any interest in the estate and has informed them.” Attached to the declaration are proofs of service of the amended forms and notice of ruling to various persons. It is unclear whether these persons are those identified by Counsel to have an interest in the estate. The Court also notes that a proof of service to Defendants’ counsel of the amended forms is not included.

At or before the hearing, Counsel must identify who the parties in the attached proofs of service are. Counsel is also ordered to submit a proof of service indicating the amended forms were served upon Defendants’ counsel.

On October 29, 2019, Rob Saslow, CLPF, NCG, administrator of the estate of Plaintiff filed a motion to substitute into the action. According to the attached declaration of his counsel Jeffrey A. Coleman, Plaintiff passed away on February 26, 2019. She died intestate. All of her relatives within the third degree pre-deceased her. (Coleman Decl. ¶ 2.) Saslow filed a petition for probate on behalf of Plaintiff’s Estate. Three distant relatives of Plaintiff nominated Saslow as administrator of the Estate. On October 25, 2019, the Probate Court granted Plaintiff’s Estate’s for probate and granted Saslow full powers under the Independent Administration of Estates Act, with limited authority. Plaintiff’s Estate’s motion to substitute into the action is currently set for hearing on April 7, 2020 – after the trial date. The parties should be prepared to discuss advancing the motion to substitute into the action to November 7, 2019 or November 13, 2019.
