ORDER GRANTING DEFENDANT
FRANK MAZZOLA AND RELIEFDEFENDANT MICHELE MAZZOLA’S
COUNSELS’ MOTION TO WITHDRAW
AS ATTORNEYS OF RECORD
Docket No. 176
Counsel for Defendant Franz Mazzola and Relief-Defendant Michele Mazzola move to
withdraw as attorneys of record on the ground that Defendants have failed to pay the agreed upon
attorneys’ fees due and owing. Docket No. 176. Failure to pay attorneys’ fees constitutes good
cause to withdraw under the California Rules of Professional Conduct. Kirkland v. Golden Boy
Promotions, 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 198853, *3 (C.D. Cal. May 8, 2013). Defendants do not
oppose the instant motion; to the contrary, they previously stipulated to substituting themselves as
pro se parties. Docket No. 173.
The Court GRANTS the motion to withdraw. Defendants are reminded that pro se parties
are expected to comply with all applicable rules, including the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
and the Civil Local Rules of this District.
This order disposes of Docket No. 176.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: April 25, 2017
