IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
September 3, 2009
SHARON FRONCHECK, PLAINTIFF,
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
A review of the record reveals that final judgment against plaintiff and in favor of defendant has been entered. (Doc. 40). Attorney Michelle L. Rousseau was previously appointed for all proceedings in the District Court. (Doc. 24). At the end of litigation in the District Court, attorney Rousseau was not formally terminated as attorney of record for plaintiff. Plaintiff has now initiated an appeal pro se, and attorney Rousseau is currently receiving all communications from this Court, which include the Circuit Rule 10 letter.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that attorney Michelle L. Rousseau's appointment as counsel for plaintiff is TERMINATED, and the Clerk of Court shall have the record reflect that plaintiff is proceeding pro se. Plaintiff's address-- 318 Sycamore Street, Collinsville, IL 62234 (as confirmed by counsel)-- should be re-entered in the record.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, although attorney Rousseau has confirmed plaintiff has received copies of recent filings in this case, the Clerk of Court shall send plaintiff copies of Documents 35-40.
The Court reminds plaintiff that she must either submit the appellate filing fee or file a motion to proceed as a pauper, or the appeal is likely to be dismissed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
