1 2 3 4 5 6 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 7 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 8 9 IN RE JAMES R. JOHNSON No. C 11-00092 WHA No. C 17-02154 WHA 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 12 13 ORDER DENYING MOTIONS TO WITHDRAW AS COUNSEL 14 15 / 16 17 Charles Smith, counsel for plaintiff James Johnson, has filed a motion to withdraw as 18 counsel from each of the above-captioned actions. Both actions are closed. All that remains to 19 be done is a judgment debtor exam in Case No. 11-0092. (Magistrate Judge Sallie Kim had 20 scheduled said judgment debtor exam for August 16, but Johnson did not appear.) 21 Nevertheless, Johnson has apparently asked Attorney Smith to withdraw “because [Johnson] no 22 longer has confidence in [Attorney Smith] and desires [to] proceed in propia persona.” 23 Attorney Smith has seen these cases through this far and can stick around for the judgment 24 debtor exam. His motions to withdraw are DENIED. 25 26 IT IS SO ORDERED. 27 28 Dated: August 24, 2017. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
