UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF IDAHO
SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION,
ALTERNATE ENERGY HOLDINGS, INC., et al
Case No. 1:10-CV-00621-EJL
Before the Court is Defendant’s counsel’s Motion to Withdraw. The Motion states
that the Defendant Donald L. Gillispie and Relief Defendant Energy Executive Consulting,
LLC no longer have the financial ability to retain counsel and continued representation in
this matter would result in an unreasonable financial burden to counsel. Mr. Gillispie has
submitted a written consent to this Motion for himself and on behalf of Energy Executive
Consulting, LLC. (Dkt. 285-1, Ex. A.) In addition, counsel has filed a supporting Declaration
to the Motion. (Dkt. 285-2.) The Court has reviewed the Motion, Declaration, supporting
materials and entire record herein and finds as follows.
ORDER - 1
Case 1:10-cv-00621-EJL-REB Document 286 Filed 07/11/14 Page 2 of 3
Motions to withdraw as counsel are governed by Local Civil Rule 83.6, which
requires counsel to request leave of the Court in order to withdraw from representation. This
Court having considered the Motion to Withdraw and the supporting documentation, finds
good cause exists to grant the Motion.
NOW THEREFORE IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Motion to Withdraw
(Dkt. 285) is GRANTED. Counsel is directed to comply with Local Civil Rule 83.6 in all
respects and, specifically, to serve this order on the clients forthwith.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that counsel of record will continue to represent the
clients until proof of service of this Order upon the client has been filed with the Court.
Thereafter, Donald L. Gillispie and/or Energy Executive Consulting, LLC shall have twenty-
one (21) days from the filing of the proof of service of this order by the attorney to file
written notice with the Court stating how he/it shall be represented in this matter.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Donald L. Gillispie shall appoint another attorney
to appear and represent him or appear in person by filing a written notice with the Court
stating how she will be represented. As to Energy Executive Consulting, LLC, the Court
notifies it that as a corporation it cannot appear without being represented by an attorney and
must file a notice of appearance by an attorney. See Dist. Idaho Loc. Civ. R. 83.4(d),
Case 1:10-cv-00621-EJL-REB Document 286 Filed 07/11/14 Page 3 of 3
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that upon entry of this Order and filing of the proof of
service on the clients, no further proceedings can be had in this action which will affect the
rights of Donald L. Gillispie and/or Energy Executive Consulting, LLC for twenty-one (21)
If Donald L. Gillispie and/or Energy Executive Consulting, LLC fails to appear in
this action within such twenty-one (21) day period, such failure shall be sufficient grounds
for the entry of a default against such party or dismissal of the action of such party with
prejudice and without further notice.
