Hon. Matthew F. Leitman

ORDER TERMINATING APPEARANCE OF ATTORNEY DAVID G.
LUTZ AND CONCERNING NEXT STEPS IN LITIGATION
Plaintiff Becky Jo Buck (“Plaintiff”) is represented by David G. Lutz (“Lutz”)
in this action. By written order dated June 21, 2017, Chief Judge Denise Page Hood
suspended Lutz from the practice of law before this Court for a period of 18 months.
See In Re David Lutz, Case No. 17-mc-50860 (E.D. Mich.), at ECF #1. Given Lutz’s
suspension, it is no longer appropriate for him to remain as counsel for Plaintiff in
this action. On October 3, 2017, the Court held a status conference that was attended
by Becky Jo Buck, David Lutz, and counsel for the Defendants.
As discussed on the record at the conference, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED
(1) The appearance of David G. Lutz in this action is terminated.
(2) By not later than November 2, 2017, Plaintiff Becky Jo Buck shall:
(a) have new counsel file an appearance on her behalf; (b) inform
the Court that she will represent herself; or (c) notify the court if she
determines not to proceed with this action. If Plaintiff chooses to
represent herself or not to proceed with this action, she shall inform
the Clerk of the Court by letter to 231 W. Lafayette Blvd., Detroit,
(3) Plaintiff is advised that failure to comply with paragraph (2) above
may result in dismissal of this action.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
