MEMORANDUM Order: After this Court dismissed the Complaint and this action, brought by Jeffrey Martensen ("Martensen") under the section of the Dodd-Frank Act ("Act") prohibiting retaliatory conduct, because Martensen did not qualify as a "whistleblower" as defined by the Act, Martensen filed a motion to vacate the dismissal order pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. ("Rule") 60(b) and a motion for leave to amend the Complaint pursuant to Rule 15(a) (Dkt. No. 21) but two days later (on July 5) Martensen's counsel filed a motion to withdraw pursuant to this District Court's LR 83.17 (Dkt. No. 22) together with an affidavit in support of that motion (Dkt. No. 23) that cast critical doubt on what Martensen is now seeking to do. In part Martensen has now asserted that he indeed a "statutory whistleblower" because he assertedly had "prior contact with the SEC, which included contact via the SEC website and in person discussions" but he has not provided a "proposed amendment to the complaint detailing plaintiff's prior interaction with SEC." Accordingly this Court is not in a position to rule on Martensen's current Dkt. No. 21 motion without Martensen's submission of his proposed amended complaint. Hence he is ordered to submit that proposed amended complaint on or before July 31, 2017, failing which his current motion must be denied. Signed by the Honorable Milton I. Shadur on 7/11/2017:Mailed notice(clw, )

MEMORANDUM Order: On July 11, 2017 this Court issued its memorandum order dealing with the effort by Jeffrey Martensen ("Martensen") to revisit this Court's dismissal of his Complaint and this action. Meanwhile his counsel has filed a motion to withdraw from his representation pursuant to this District Court's LR 83.17. This Court grants that motion, for it consistently views such motions (whether initiated by a lawyer or by a dissatisfied client) as the equivalent of no-fault divorce, for in either event it would be inappropriate to compel the two to be linked together. Accordingly Martensen must proceed pro se unless he promptly retains replacement counsel. Signed by the Honorable Milton I. Shadur on 7/17/2017:Mailed notice(clw, )
