IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 27, 2010
MORRIS P. HARMON, JR., PETITIONER,
WARDEN DERRAL G. ADAMS, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable Barbara J. Rothstein United States District Judge
MOTION FOR SUBSTITUTION OF COUNSEL; PROPOSED ORDER
Petitioner, MORRIS P. HARMON, JR., hereby moves this Court for an order substituting Mark D. Eibert, Attorney at Law, P.O. Box 1126, Half Moon Bay, California 94019-1126, telephone (650) 638-2380, facsimile number (650) 712-8377, as counsel for petitioner in the above-captioned case. Bruce Locke has determined that he is unable to continue to represent petitioner. Mr. Locke does not practice in state court, and is close to being over-whelmed with other cases that demand his time. Mr. Locke will not submit a bill in this case for the time that he has spent because much of this time will have to be duplicated by new counsel. Mr. Eibert has been selected by the Federal Defender.
Mr. Locke has explained the need for new counsel to petitioner and petitioner has agreed to the substitution.
A copy of the file in this case will be mailed to Mr. Eibert.
Dated: October 25, 2010
Pursuant to this motion for Substitution of Counsel and for the reasons stated therein,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Mark D. Eibert, Esq., shall be substituted in as appointed counsel for Petitioner in place of Bruce Locke.
