MEMORANDUM Order: Attorney Sally Comin ("Comin") has filed a "Motion for Leave To Withdraw as Counsel for Rodney Carbajal" (the "Motion," Dkt. No. 40), asserting that it "is based on an irreconcilable conflict betwe en Counsel and [Rodney] Carbajal resulting from Carbajal's refusal to trust counsel and take her legal advice." This Court need not take any position on the merits of the matter, for it consistently views such motions (whether initiated by a lawyer or a dissatisfied client) as the equivalent of no-fault divorce, because in either event it would be inappropriate to compel the two to be linked together. Instead it simply grants the Motion. As for Carbajal, he is directed either to obtain replacement counsel or to choose to proceed pro se, a decision that must be made on or before August 31, 2017. Signed by the Honorable Milton I. Shadur on 8/10/2017:Mailed notice(clw, )
