Norval v. Metropolitan Life Insurance Company et al
ORDER denying Counter Defendant, Janine Adair Haug's 19 Motion to Withdraw as Attorney. Signed by Judge James L. Robart.(TH)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
CASE NO. C17-0704JLR
WITHDRAWAL OF COUNSEL
INSURANCE COMPANY, et al.,
Before the court is Karolyn Hicks’s motion to withdraw as counsel for
Interpleader Counter-Defendant Janine Haug. (Mot. (Dkt. # 19).) Because the motion
does not comply with the requirements for attorney withdrawal set forth in Local Civil
Rule 83.2(b), the court DENIES the motion to withdraw without prejudice.
If withdrawal would leave a party unrepresented, the motion for withdrawal “must
include the party’s address and telephone number.” Local Rules W.D. Wash. LCR
83.2(b)(1). The instant motion fails to comply with this requirement, as Ms. Hicks’s
ORDER - 1
withdrawal leaves Ms. Haug unrepresented but the motion does not contain Ms. Haug’s
telephone number. (See generally Mot.) The court therefore DENIES the motion to
withdraw (Dkt. # 19) without prejudice to refiling the motion in the manner prescribed in
Local Civil Rule 83.2(b).
Dated this 8th day of September, 2017.
JAMES L. ROBART
United States District Judge
ORDER - 2
