ORDER (Mot WD Atty – ECF No. 12) WAL-MART STORES, INC., Defendant. 11 12 This matter is before the court on Paul S. Padda, Michael C. Lafia, and Joshua Y. Ang’s 13 Motion to Withdraw as Counsel of Record for Plaintiff Mack Joseph Miller, II (ECF No. 12). The 14 court has reviewed the motion and Defendant Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. d/b/a Sam’s Club’s Notice of 15 Non-Opposition (ECF No. 13). The motion represents that counsel and plaintiff Miller have a 16 difference in opinion regarding the prosecution of this case that makes counsels’ involvement 17 impractical. Messrs. Padda, Lafia, and Ang therefore seek to withdraw as counsel of record. 18 Having reviewed and considered the matter, and for good cause shown, 19 IT IS ORDERED that: 20 1. Messrs. Padda, Lafia and Ang’s Motion to Withdraw as Counsel of Record for Plaintiff 21 Mack Joseph Miller, II (ECF No. 12) is GRANTED. 22 2. Plaintiff shall have until September 29, 2017, in which to retain substitute counsel who 23 shall make an appearance in accordance with the requirements of the Local Rules of 24 Practice, or shall file a notice with the court that he will be appearing in this matter pro 25 se. 26 3. Plaintiff’s failure to timely comply with this order by either obtaining substitute 27 counsel, or filing a notice that he will be appearing in this matter pro se may result in 28 the imposition of sanctions, which may include a recommendation to the District Judge 1     1 that plaintiff’s complaint be dismissed for failure to prosecute. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 2 41(b). 3 4. The Clerk of the Court shall serve the plaintiff with a copy of this order at his last 4 known addresses: 5 Mack Joseph Miller II 6655 W. Sahara Ave., Ste.
