Order to Show Cause, Affirmation in Support 1,2
In his supporting affirmation, attorney Joshua D. Lindy has indicated that his
office has been unable to locate the claimants, despite several attempts, and as
a result, they are unable to continue representing claimants in this claim.
The Court notes that claimants have not submitted any papers or otherwise
communicated with the Court regarding this application.
Based on the foregoing, the application from THE LAW OFFICES OF DOMINICK W.
LAVELLE to be relieved from further representation of the claimants in this
matter is hereby granted, to the extent provided herein, and it is
ORDERED, that THE LAW OFFICES OF DOMINICK W. LAVELLE are directed to serve a
filed copy of this Order upon claimants by certified mail, return receipt
requested, as well as by regular mail, and are further directed to file the
original affidavit of service, with the signed return receipt attached, with the
Clerk of the Court; and it is further
ORDERED, that a copy of the filed Order shall also be mailed to the Attorney
General by regular mail, and an original affidavit of such service shall be
filed with the Clerk of the Court; and it is further
ORDERED, that upon the Clerk’s receipt of these affidavits of service,
counsel shall be relieved from representation of the claimants, and claimants
shall be considered pro se unless another attorney appears on their
behalf; and it is further
ORDERED, that all proceedings in this matter are stayed for a period of 30 days
from the date of filing of this Order, and during such 30-day period claimants
are directed to notify the Court, in writing, of the name and address of their
new attorney if they have retained such an attorney, or alternatively that they
are in fact proceeding pro se.
