(collectively, “Big Lots”), move to withdraw as counsel of record pursuant to S.D. Cal. 1 18-CV-02913-RSH-DEB 1 Civ. L.R. 83.3(g)(3). According to Ms. Davis’s declaration, Haight Brown was retained 2 to provide local counsel services to Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLP (“Vorys”) in 3 this matter but will no longer provide these services because Vorys now has a California 4 office. See ECF No. 287-1. Big Lots will continue to be represented by Vorys and has 5 consented to the withdrawal of Ms. Davis and Ms. Obra-White. Therefore, the Court 6 finds there is good cause for withdrawal and Big Lots will not be harmed. The Court 7 hereby GRANTS the Motion (ECF No. 287). 8 9 10 IT IS SO ORDERED.
