UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Case No. 2:16-cv-02942-JCM-PAL
(Mot WD Atty – ECF No. 71)
Before the court is Lance Maningo’s Motion to Withdraw as Counsel (ECF No.
71). He represents defendant Sean Abid. The motion states that Mr. Abid is experiencing financial
hardship, is unable to pay counsel and wants to proceed pro se, that is, represent himself. Mr.
Maningo therefore seeks leave to withdraw as counsel of record.
Having reviewed and considered the matter, and for good cause shown,
IT IS ORDERED:
Mr. Maningo’s Motion to Withdraw (#71) is GRANTED.
Defendant Sean Abid shall have until January 5, 2018 in which to either retain
substitute counsel who shall make an appearance in accordance with the
requirements of the Local Rules of Practice, or to file a notice with the court that
he will be appearing in this matter pro se.
Defendant Sean Abid’s failure to timely comply with this order by either obtaining
substitute counsel, or filing a notice that he will be appearing in this matter pro se
may result in the imposition of sanctions, which may include a recommendation to
the District Judge for default judgment.
The Clerk of the Court shall serve the defendant with a copy of this order at his last
