James R. Johnson v. Steven L. Myers et al
ORDER DENYING 30 MOTIONS TO WITHDRAW AS COUNSEL by Hon. William Alsup. (whalc2, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 8/24/2017)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
IN RE JAMES R. JOHNSON
No. C 11-00092 WHA
No. C 17-02154 WHA
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
ORDER DENYING MOTIONS
TO WITHDRAW AS COUNSEL
Charles Smith, counsel for plaintiff James Johnson, has filed a motion to withdraw as
counsel from each of the above-captioned actions. Both actions are closed. All that remains to
be done is a judgment debtor exam in Case No. 11-0092. (Magistrate Judge Sallie Kim had
scheduled said judgment debtor exam for August 16, but Johnson did not appear.)
Nevertheless, Johnson has apparently asked Attorney Smith to withdraw “because [Johnson] no
longer has confidence in [Attorney Smith] and desires [to] proceed in propia persona.”
Attorney Smith has seen these cases through this far and can stick around for the judgment
debtor exam. His motions to withdraw are DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: August 24, 2017.
