Jurgen Meinhart v. John Goodman, et al.

Case No: 17CV04124
Hearing Date: Tue Mar 13, 2018 9:30

Nature of Proceedings: Motion to be Relieved as Counsel

Motion to be relieved as counsel of record; Jonathan A, Michaels; Kathryn J. Harvey; MLG Automotive Law, APLC

Ruling: Granted; there is an order in the file and the Court intends to sign it.


The plaintiff’s attorneys are seeking to withdraw, contending that plaintiff ceased all communications with them last November. In spite of numerous attempts to contact him, he has refused to respond, and refused to participate in the litigation. As a result, they have not been able to carry out their employment effectively. However, they have been unable to confirm that his address is current, or to locate a more current address. E-mail has always been their primary method of contact, and while they have e-mailed him in Germany where he resides, he has not responded. They have no other way of communicating with him. The next hearing is a CMC in July. Trial is on 9/18/18.

The Motion should be granted.
