MICHAEL WAYNE ELLIS, et al.,

Plaintiff,



Defendants.

2:13-cv-0464-APG-NJK

O R D E R

This matter is before the court on Substitution of Counsel (#26) filed June 3, 2013.

Defendants seek to substitute Bruce Scott Dickinson, Esq., of Stephenson & Dickinson, P.C., in

the place and stead of Kevin R. Diamond, Esq., of Thorndal Armstrong Delk Balkenbush &

Eisinger.

Local Rule IA 10-6(b) provides that no attorney may withdraw after appearing in this case

except by leave of court after notice is served on the affected client and opposing counsel. Local

Rule IA 10-6(c) specifies the manner in which a stipulation to substitute attorneys shall be

presented and provides that the attorneys’ stipulation to substitute “constitutes an express

acceptance of all dates then set for pretrial proceedings, for trial or hearing, by the discovery

plan, or any court order.” Subparagraphs (d) and (e) explicitly provide that discharge,

withdrawal, or substitution of an attorney shall not alone be reason for delay of pretrial

proceedings, discovery, or trial, and that except for good cause shown, no withdrawals will be

approved if delay would result.
