Civil Practice – Attorneys – Criminal Contempt – Sanction – Dismissal – Disciplinary Order – Co-Counsel Required (access required)

Ray v. Greer Plaintiffs knew their attorney was required by a disciplinary order to practice only with co-counsel. After plaintiffs' attorney and her original co-counsel reached an impasse over a difference in trial strategy, plaintiffs chose to remain represented by their attorney, and they stayed with her even when she failed to comply with a court order to obtain substitute co-counsel by the date required. We affirm the trial court's dismissal of plaintiffs' complaint as a sanction for their attorney's failure to obtain co-counsel.
