Lee v. Ho et al
ORDER Approving 54 Substitution of Counsel. Signed by Hon. Beth Labson Freeman on 10/14/2014. (blflc2, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 10/14/2014)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
SAN JOSE DIVISION
Case No. 14-cv-01127-BLF
ORDER APPROVING SUBSTITUTION
SHELBY HO, et al.,
[Re: ECF 54]
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Civil Local Rule 5-1(c)(2)(E) provides that “[t]he replacement of one firm by another as
counsel for a party is governed by Civil L.R. 11-5 and requires an order of the Court.” The Court
accordingly construes defendants Benny Ko and Vanessa Lavendera’s October 9, 2014 “Notice of
Substitution of Counsel” as a request from former counsel to withdraw from the representation.
ECF 54. The Court is satisfied that all parties have been afforded reasonable notice of the change
in counsel and therefore GRANTS the request. Attorney Charles Kreindler and the Sheppard,
Mullin, Richter & Hampton, LLP law firm are hereby replaced by Matthew Donald Umhofer of
Spertus, Landes and Umhofer, LLP as counsel for defendants Benny Ko and Vanessa Lavendera.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: October 14, 2014
