ORDER REGARDING 6 ATTORNEY STEPHEN J. HASSING'S 7 MOTION TO WITHDRAW AS COUNSEL FOR PLAINTIFF KUMAN
On April 7, 2013, attorney Steven J. Hassing filed a motion 16 to withdraw as counsel for Plaintiff Kuman Banque, LLC and noticed 17 it for hearing on May 16, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Docket No. 136. 18 Because Plaintiff was served with a copy of the motion by mail, 19 its response to the motion must be filed no later than April 24, 20 2013. See Civil Local Rule 7-3(a). 21 The motion to withdraw appears to be well-taken. Thus, 22 Plaintiff is notified that, if it fails to file a written 23 opposition by April 22, 2013 or to appear at the May 16, 2013 24 hearing to oppose the motion, the motion to withdraw will be 25 granted. Withdrawal may be subject to the condition that Mr. 26 Hassing continues to accept service of papers for forwarding 27 purposes until Plaintiff has obtained new counsel. 28

Accordingly, Plaintiff is notified that, if the 9 motion to withdraw is granted, it must find substitute counsel to 10 represent it. If Mr. Hassing's motion is granted, the Court will 11 permit Plaintiff fourteen days in which to locate new counsel and 12 have counsel make an appearance in this case. Plaintiff is forewarned that, if it does not find counsel to represent it and to make an appearance in this case within the time permitted, the 15 Court will dismiss its case for failure to prosecute. 16 The Clerk is directed to serve a copy of this Order upon 17 Plaintiff at the addresses listed on pages five to six of Mr. 18 Hassing's motion. The Clerk is also directed to serve a copy of 19 this Order upon Larry Kudla and Meilin Liu at the email addresses 20 listed on those pages of the motion. 21 IT IS SO ORDERED. 22 23
