Tentative Rulings

Case Number: BC673682    Hearing Date: December 13, 2019    Dept: 4B

[TENTATIVE] ORDER RE: MOTION TO BE RELIEVED

Douglas E. Kottler seeks to be relieved as counsel of record for plaintiff Ricky Allen Sears on the grounds that Plaintiff is now deceased and his successor-in-interest will not proceed with the action. Beverly Joyce Burwell is Plaintiff’s successor-in-interest. Kim Earnest holds the power of attorney for Ms. Burwell, including the power to conduct legal matters on Ms. Burwell’s behalf. Ms. Earnest has communicated that she will not proceed with the matter on her mother’s behalf. 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.) Counsel’s Motion complies with California Rules of Court, Rule 3.1362.

No trial date is set in this matter. An OSC re Dismissal for Failure to Appoint a Successor in Interest is set for December 18, 2019. Accordingly, this unopposed motion to be relieved is GRANTED and effective after December 18, 2019 and upon filing a proof of service showing service of this Order on Plaintiff’s successor-in-interest 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.
