JOANNA FERGUSON, ET AL.,
CLARK COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
Presently before the court is plaintiff Joanna Ferguson's, by and through her guardians Joan Ferguson and Veronica Ferguson, petition for disbursement of monies from blocked bank account. (Doc. # 123).
This court approved the settlement between plaintiff and defendants. (Doc. # 108). Plaintiff's attorney then filed notice of proof of plaintiff's blocked trust account because plaintiff is a minor. (Doc. # 120). Plaintiff's guardians now seek to remove certain funds from the blocked account.
Plaintiff is still represented by an attorney. The local rules mandate that "[a] party who has appeared by attorney cannot while so represented appear or act in the case. An attorney who has appeared for a party shall be recognized by the Court and all the parties as having control of the client's case." LR IA 10-6(a). If plaintiff's guardians wish to withdraw funds from the blocked trust account then they must comply with the local rules. The motion is denied.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED, ADJUDGED, AND DECREED that plaintiff's petition for disbursement of monies from blocked bank account (doc. # 123) be, and the same hereby, is DENIED.
