Tentative Rulings

Case Number: BC663378    Hearing Date: November 01, 2019    Dept: 4B

[TENTATIVE] ORDER RE: MOTION TO BE RELIEVED AS COUNSEL

Alan P. Trafton, of Gates, Gonter, Guy, Proudfoot & Muench, LLP, seeks to be relieved as counsel for defendant Mark Tidwell (“Defendant”). Mr. Trafton was retained by State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company (“State Farm”) to represent their insured, Defendant. A separate declaratory relief action was also filed by State Farm against Defendant. A judgment in favor of State Farm was filed in the declaratory relief action, and State Farm is now withdrawing its defense of Defendant. Absent a showing of resulting prejudice, an attorney’s request for withdrawal should be granted. (People v. Prince (1968) 268 Cal.App.2d 398, 406.) Trial in this matter is currently set for March 17, 2020 and no prejudice will result from granting this motion. Accordingly, this unopposed motion to be relieved is GRANTED and effective upon filing a proof of service showing service of this Order on Defendant and all parties who have appeared.

Moving party to give notice.

Parties who intend to submit on this tentative must send an email to the Court at SSCDEPT4B@lacourt.org indicating intention to submit on the tentative as directed by the instructions provided on the court website at www.lacourt.org. The Court will be dark on November 1, 2019. A party requesting argument should contact Department 4B for an alternate hearing date.
