ORDER GRANTING MOTION FOR RULING ON QUALIFICATION OF COUNSEL
This matter is before the Court on the plaintiff’s motion for a ruling on whether the plaintiff’s
counsel of record is disqualified from representing the plaintiff due to an ethical conflict. The Court
has reviewed the submissions of the parties and heard oral argument on May 30, 2017. At the end
of the hearing the Court announced from the bench its decision to grant the motion and its finding
that attorney Bruce Truex is not disqualified from representing the plaintiff in this case.
Accordingly, for the reasons stated on the record, it is ORDERED that the plaintiff’s motion
for a ruling as to the qualification of counsel [dkt. #16] is GRANTED, and the Court finds that
attorney Bruce Truex is not disqualified from proceeding as counsel of record for the plaintiff in this
case. However, the Secrest Wardle law firm must ensure that attorney Daniel Makarski does not
receive any portion of the fee from this case.
