September 7, 2006
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
ENOCH SMITH, (A.K.A. "RUDY SLACK"), ET AL, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
Pending before the Court is defendant Enoch Smith's (a.k.a. "Rudy Slack") Motion to Appoint New Counsel (Doc. 219). A hearing was conducted on September 6, 2006, in order to hear Defendant's reasons for requesting new counsel. Due to a severe breakdown in the attorney-client relationship, the Court hereby GRANTS Defendant's Motion (Doc. 219). As such, defendant Smith's current counsel, Eric Butts, is hereby withdrawn as representative counsel for defendant Smith in this case. In his stead, the Court hereby APPOINTS Thomas Patrick Deaton, Jr., as the CJA attorney to represent defendant Enoch Smith in this matter.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
