Disqualification — Ruling on Motion to Disqualify Counsel Not Disturbed on Appeal If the Record Reveals Any Sound Basis for the District Court’s Action (Good Quote)
Beaty v. Hoa, 2015 U.S. App. LEXIS 4640 (9th Cir. Mar. 20, 2015):
The district court did not abuse its discretion in denying Beaty's motions for disqualification of opposing counsel because the record supports the denial. See Cohn v. Rosenfeld, 733 F.2d 625, 631 (9th Cir. 1984) (this court "will not disturb a district court's ruling on a motion to disqualify counsel if the record reveals any sound basis for the court's action" (citation and internal quotation marks omitted)); Paul E. Iacono Structural Eng'r, Inc. v. Humphrey, 722 F.2d 435, 438 (9th Cir. 1983) (setting forth standard of review).
