San Francisco Police Department et al Doc. 21 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 UNITED UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 12 For the Northern District of California UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT Northern District of California MIKE QUAN, et al., v. Plaintiffs, No. C 10-1835 MEJ ORDER RE: WITHDRAWAL OF COUNSEL SAN FRANCISCO POLICE DEPT., et al., Defendants. _____________________________________/ 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 On November 2, 2010, Plaintiffs and their counsel, Mark L. Webb, filed a Stipulation to Withdraw Mark L. Webb as Counsel of Record. (Dkt. #20.) However, the stipulation does not name a new attorney and instead states that Plaintiffs will locate a new attorney and therefore file a substitution of counsel. Pursuant to Civil Local Rule 11-5, "Counsel may not withdraw from an action until relieved by order of Court after written notice has been given reasonably in advance to the client and to all other parties who have appeared in the case." Accordingly, Plaintiffs' substitution is DENIED WITHOUT PREJUDICE to the filing of a properly noticed motion pursuant to Civil Local Rules 7 and 11-5, or the filing of a substitution of counsel. IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: November 3, 2010 _______________________________ Maria-Elena James Chief United States Magistrate Judge Dockets.Justia.com
