STUART M. SIMONSEN, and
KAPIDYIA CAPITAL PARTNERS,
Pending before the Court is the motion ofT. Thomas Singer ("Singer") and
Elizabeth L. Griffing ("Griffing") to withdraw as counsel for Kapidyia Capital
Partners, LLC. 1 The motion text recites, in part:
Counsel for Plaintiff was contacted regarding this
motion by email on Tuesday, May 16, and again by
telephone and email on Friday, May 19, 2017. As of the
time of filing, counsel had not responded. 2
In order to comply with L.R. 7. l(c)(l)'s requirement for communication
with other parties, "[t]he text of the motion must state that other parties have been
contacted and state whether any party objects to the motion." 3
The statement in Singer and Griffing's motion does not satisfy counsel's
obligations under L.R. 7. l. Good faith compliance requires both contact with
other parties and a statement of whether any object to the motion. Direct dialogue
and discussion in a face to face meeting (whether in person or by electronic
means), in a telephone conversation, or in detailed, comprehensive correspondence
is necessary ifthe requirements of the rule are to be met.
Counsel are reminded that failure to comply with L.R. 7 .1 "may result in
summary denial of the motion." 4
Singer and Griffing shall forthwith take all steps necessary and appropriate:
(I) to comply with L.R. 7.l(c)(l) as related to the Motion to Withdraw as Counsel
for Kapidyia Capital Partners, LLC; 5 and (2) to provide the Court with a statement
