BRIAN WILLIAMS, SR., et al.,
In this habeas corpus action, brought by Nevada prisoner Debaron Sanders, the court
appointed counsel -- attorney Gia McGillivray -- to represent Sanders (ECF Nos. 21, 23), and set a
schedule for Sanders to file a first amended habeas petition or a notice stating that he will not file an
amended habeas petition. See Order entered March 28, 2016 (ECF No. 25). Sanders’ amended
petition, or notice that he will not file one, is due on July 11, 2016. See Order entered May 11, 2016
(ECF No. 28).
On June 14, 2016, McGillivray filed a motion to withdraw (ECF No. 29). In that motion,
McGillivray states that she has discovered that she has conflict of interest preventing her from
representing Sanders. Therefore, good cause appearing, the court will grant McGillivray’s motion to
withdraw, and will discharge her from her representation of Sanders. The court will, in a separate
order, appoint new counsel for Sanders.
The court will also suspend the deadline for Sanders to file an amended habeas petition. That
deadline will be reset after new counsel is appointed to represent Sanders.

of Record (ECF No. 29) is GRANTED. Gia McGillivray is discharged from her representation of
the petitioner in this case.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the deadline for petitioner to file an amended petition for
