Brian Poff II,
Case No. 2:20-cv-01642-JCM-DJA
Before the Court is Messner Reeves LLP’s motion to withdraw as counsel of record for
Defendant Brian Poff. (ECF No. 21). The Court finds these matters properly resolved without a
hearing. LR 78-1. Pursuant to Local Rule IA 11-6(b), “[i]f an attorney seeks to withdraw after
appearing in a case, the attorney must file a motion or stipulation and serve it on the affected
client and opposing counsel.” Here, all affected parties, including Defendant, have been made
aware of the motion, and Defendant’s counsel has assured the Court that the withdrawal will not
result in delay. However, Defendant’s counsel inconsistently refers to Defendant as both
Defendant and Plaintiff in their motion. The Court reminds Defendant’s counsel that they should
carefully review future filings to avoid potentially confusing discrepancies.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Defendant’s counsel’s motion to withdraw (ECF
No. 21) is granted.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Defendant Brian Poff shall have thirty days, until
Monday, December 20, 2021, to advise the Court if he will retain new counsel or proceed pro se.
Failure to notify the Court as to Defendant’s new representation may subject him to dispositive
sanctions, including a recommendation for dismissal of this action.
