UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: George Foley, Jr. United States Magistrate Judge
Motion to Withdraw (#31)
This matter comes before the Court on James Oronoz, Esq.'s Motion for Leave to Withdraw as Counsel for Defendant Irina Sanford ("Sanford") (#31), filed on May 6, 2013. Mr. Oronoz represents that he recently discovered another attorney from his firm represents a co-defendant in a case that arises from the same facts and circumstances as this case. Mr. Oronoz anticipates that if the co-defendants from the related case proceed to trial, they will be joined in a single indictment with the defendants in the instant case. Therefore, Mr. Oronoz argues continued representation of Sanford may pose a conflict of interest. The Court finds Mr. Oronoz establishes good cause to withdraw as counsel for Sanford. Accordingly,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED thatJames Oronoz, Esq.'s Motion for Leave to Withdraw as Counsel for Irina Sanford (#31) is granted.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that new CJA counsel shall be appointed and present for a to appoint new counsel for Defendant Sanford on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 at 3:00 PM in Las Vegas Courtroom 3A.
