FILED 2016 Feb-17 PM 04:01 U.S. DISTRICT COURT N.D. OF ALABAMA IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA SOUTHERN DIVISION EMERGENCY RESPONSE SPECIALISTS, INC., Plaintiff and Counterclaim-Defendant, v. CSA OCEAN SCIENCES, INC, Defendant and Counterclaim-Plaintiff. } } } } } } } } } } } } } CIVIL ACTION NO. 2:14-cv-2214-WMA MEMORANDUM OPINION & ORDER Before the court is the motion by plaintiff’s attorneys for leave to withdraw. (Doc. 30). Even though defendant’s response to the motion is conciliatory, it detects the fatal flaw in the motion, namely that a corporation cannot litigate without a lawyer. Only if a lawyer licensed to practice in this court enters an appearance for plaintiff and in the appearance he or she formally agrees to be bound by the existing schedule, will the court consider the motion for leave to withdraw. This should not be construed as a promise to grant the motion if or when this prerequisite is met. The motion is DENIED. DONE this 17th day of February, 2016. _____________________________ WILLIAM M. ACKER, JR. UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
