UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
LAMONTE R. YOUNG SR.,
Case No. 3:22-cv-00229-JPG
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on Plaintiff Lamonte R. Young Sr. (“Plaintiff”) and
Plaintiff’s counsel requests to terminate and withdraw from this case (Docs. 43, 44). On March 7,
2022, this Court assigned attorney J. Hayes Ryan of Gordon & Rees LLP to represent Plaintiff in
this matter, which is a case in this Court based on employment discrimination. (Doc. 11). In that
order assigning attorney Ryan, this Court told Plaintiff that “[i]f counsel is allowed to withdraw at
the request of Plaintiff, there is no guarantee the Court will appoint other counsel to represent
Plaintiff.”). (Doc. 11). Because the Court allowed associates who are admitted to practice in this
district to enter their appearances, attorneys Jessica Petrovski and Katherine Decker from Gordan
& Rees LLP also entered their appearance on behalf of Plaintiff.
Plaintiff’s motion details a breakdown in the relationship with his attorney Mr. Ryan, as
well as disagreements related to the substance of this case. Attorney Ryan’s motion indicates that
he will not expand upon Plaintiff’s motion based on attorney-client privilege but requests to
withdraw based on Plaintiff’s request. Based on “good cause” shown the Court GRANTS both
motions (Docs. 43, 44). Plaintiff shall proceed pro se in this case. The Court DIRECTS the Clerk
of the Court to TERMINATE J. Hayes Ryan, Jessica Petrovski, and Katherine Decker from the
Case 3:22-cv-00229-JPG Document 45 Filed 01/18/23 Page 2 of 2 Page ID #230
law firm Gordon & Rees LLP.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
