ORDER


Motion to Withdraw as Attorney of Record (#473)

This matter comes before the Court on Hutchison & Steffen's Motion to Withdraw as Attorney of Record (#473), filed on February 3, 2012. The Court previously granted Hutchison & Steffen's withdrawal as counsel of record for several of the Defendants in this matter. (See #274.) Hutchison & Steffen however inadvertently failed to request permission to withdraw as counsel for Lifestyles for Fitness, Inc. and Fitness for Life, Inc. Hutchison & Steffen now request the Court allow them to withdraw as counsel for the above-referenced Defendants. The Court finds the movants substantially establish good cause for the withdrawal. Accordingly,

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Hutchison & Steffen's Motion to Withdraw as Attorney of Record (#473) is granted.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Defendants Lifestyles for Fitness, Inc. and Fitness for Life, Inc. shall have until March 6, 2012 to retain new counsel if they intend to continue to litigate this matter. A corporation or limited liability company may appear in federal court only through licensed counsel. U.S. v. High Country Broad. Co., Inc., 3 F.3d 1244, 1245 (9th Cir. 1993).

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court shall:
