[TENTATIVE] ORDER RE: MOTION TO BE RELIEVED

 

Dept. 27

1:30 p.m.

August 8, 2022

 

 

 

 

Craig Rackohn seeks to be relieved as counsel of record for Plaintiff Robert Mirzakhanian Namagerdi on grounds that there has been a breakdown in the attorney-client relationship.  Absent a showing of resulting prejudice, an attorney’s request for withdrawal should be granted.  (People v. Prince (1968) 268 Cal.App.2d 398, 406.) 

Counsel’s Motion complies with California Rules of Court, Rule 3.1362.  The Court notes that trial in this matter is currently set for November 28, 2022 and no prejudice will result from granting this motion.  Accordingly, this unopposed motion to be relieved is GRANTED and effective upon filing a proof of service showing service of this Order on Plaintiff and all parties who have appeared.

Moving party to give notice.

Parties who intend to submit on this tentative must send an email to the Court at SSCDEPT27@lacourt.org indicating intention to submit on the tentative as directed by the instructions provided on the court website at www.lacourt.org.  Please be advised that if you submit on the tentative and elect not to appear at the hearing, the opposing party may nevertheless appear at the hearing and argue the matter.  Unless you receive a submission from all other parties in the matter, you should assume that others might appear at the hearing to argue.  If the Court does not receive emails from the parties indicating submission on this tentative ruling and there are no appearances at the hearing, the Court may, at its discretion, adopt the tentative as the final order or place the motion off calendar.
