An attorney has instructed the lead plaintiff that they will no longer be able to provide representation. The lead plaintiff presented allegations with evidence that one of the attorneys was acting unethical by sharing email exchanges between attorneys, disclosing that one of the attorneys disliked the lead plaintiff, instructing the lead plaintiff via email to ask questions and present concerns to another attorney, and sharing email exchanges between the lead plaintiff's attorneys and the Defendants' attorneys. The attorney in question is refusing to disclose wrongdoing and the other attorney is refusing to investigate the allegations. The attorneys have not provided the lead plaintiff time to seek other counsel. What rights does the lead plaintiff have and what can be done to protect their pending lawsuit?
This question has already been answered. Please refer to the prior response. The attorneys need to file a motion to withdraw and you can oppose the withdrawal, but the Judge is likely to grant the withdrawal precisely because of your allegation of wrong doing. An allegation of unethical behavior is wholly destructive of the attorney/client relationship. You need to get another attorney if you can. Use the find an attorney tab at the top of the page for an FLSA attorney. Not a lot of attorneys out there wanting, or able to take on class action suits, especially not for someone who may be perceived as a problem client. And to make matters worse--it is not at all clear that what you complain about is unethical or improper in anyway. You might try apologizing.
