UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA TAMPA DIVISION SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION, Plaintiff, v. Case No. 8:09-cv-0087-T-26TBM ARTHUR NADEL; SCOOP CAPITAL, LLC; SCOOP MANAGEMENT, INC. Defendants, SCOOP REAL ESTATE, L.P.; VALHALLA INVESTMENT PARTNERS, L.P.; VALHALLA MANAGEMENT, INC.; VICTORY IRA FUND, LTD.; VICTORY FUND, LTD.; VIKING IRA FUND, LLC; VIKING FUND, LLC; AND VIKING MANAGEMENT, LLC, Relief Defendants. ____________________________________/ UNOPPOSED MOTION FOR WITHDRAWAL OF GIANLUCA MORELLO AS COUNSEL FOR THE RECEIVER Pursuant to Middle District of Florida Local Rule 2.03(b), this motion is being filed to request an order permitting Gianluca Morello to withdraw as counsel of record for Burton W. Wiand, as Receiver (the “Receiver”). Mr. Morello and several other attorneys from Wiand Guerra King P.A. (“WGK”) entered appearances in this case as counsel for the Receiver. Mr. Morello recently left WGK for an in-house counsel position, and thus he will no longer be representing the Receiver or otherwise involved in this case. However, WGK, undersigned counsel, and other WGK lawyers will continue to represent the Receiver. Pursuant to Local Rule 2.03(b), notice of Mr. Morello’s intent to withdraw was provided to the Receiver, as well as to counsel for the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), and ten days have lapsed since that notice was provided. Neither the Receiver nor the SEC object to the withdrawal of Mr. Morello. WHEREFORE, Wiand Guerra King P.A. respectfully requests that this Court grant the withdrawal of Gianluca Morello as counsel of record for the Receiver. s/Michael S. Lamont Michael S.
