Cooley chairman Stephen Neal, Palo Alto partner-in-charge John Dwyer and associate Jeffrey Lombard filed the motion on Sept. 30 in U.S. District Court in Phoenix, claiming that “Ms. Holmes has not paid Cooley for any of its work as her counsel of record in this action for more than a year.
“Further, given Ms. Holmes’s current financial situation, Cooley has no expectation that Ms. Holmes will ever pay it for its services as her counsel,” the three attorneys said in the filing, asking to be removed from their representation of Holmes in the civil lawsuit.
“It is unfair and unreasonable to require Cooley to continue representing Ms. Holmes in this action,” they wrote.
