SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
FOR THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES - CENTRAL DISTRICT
JOHN ROE, DDS, ET AL.,
Case No.: BC687212
[TENTATIVE] ORDER CONDITIONALLY GRANTING COUNSEL’S MOTION TO BE RELIEVED AS COUNSEL
February 6, 2020
Plaintiff’s attorney of record, Richard M. Katz, seeks to be relieved as counsel, contending there has been a breakdown in the attorney-client relationship such that further representation is not possible. Counsel declares he confirmed Plaintiff’s address, within the past thirty days, by telephone. Counsel’s more specific declaration, however, details numerous attempts to contact Plaintiff during the thirty days prior to filing the motion, and consistently indicates that Plaintiff did not answer his phone and did not return the phone calls. Counsel must appear and clarify this discrepancy if he wishes to have the motion granted.
If the motion is granted, the relief will be effective upon filing proof of service of the final order on Plaintiff.
The Court notes that trial is scheduled on 4/29/20, and encourages Plaintiff to retain a new attorney quickly if he wishes to protect his interest in the litigation.
Counsel is ordered to give notice.
