Idaho Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 11(b)(2). Withdrawal of Attorney.

Except as otherwise provided in this Rule 11(b) and its subsections, or by stipulation and order of the court, no attorney may withdraw as an attorney of record for any party to an action without first obtaining leave and order of the court upon a motion filed with the court, and a hearing on the motion after notice to all parties to the action, including the client of the withdrawing attorney. Leave to withdraw as a counsel of record may be granted by the court for good cause and upon such conditions or sanctions as will prevent any delay in determination and disposition of the pending action and the rights of the parties. Provided, that at the time judgment is entered in any action, or at any time thereafter, an attorney who desires to withdraw as attorney of record for a party may give notice thereof in the judgment, or may file a notice of withdrawal at the time of entry of the judgment, or at any time thereafter, but such notice of withdrawal shall not become effective until the time for appeal from the final judgment has expired and there are no proceedings pending. The attorney shall provide the last known address of the client in any notice of withdrawal. 


(Amended January 8, 1976, effective March 1, 1976; amended March 31, 1978, effective July 1, 1978; amended March 20, 1991, effective July 1, 1991; amended effective September 25, 1995.)
