The composition of Merryday's order granting Dandar's motion to withdraw was unprofessional and borderline immature. I'm curious to see how the 11th Circuit reacts to it. Most likely the "nunc pro tunc" portion will be appealed since it has already been established that Dandar knew he was violating the agreement when he took on the Brennan case. Obviously he should be penalized for his actions. Lirot was the original attorney on the Brennan case but dropped out for some reason, just before Dandar picked it up. It's interesting that Dandar argued that no other attorney would touch the Brennan case, yet 5 minutes after Merryday's order was filed, Lirot filed his Notice of Appearance. This whole debacle has been a huge waste of time and resources and is an embarrassment to the legal profession, all because Dandar hoped to gain a little publicity.
