United States District Court, S.D. New York
September 6, 2005.
In re WorldCom Inc. Securities Litigation. In re WorldCom Inc. ERISA Litigation.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: DENISE COTE, District Judge
Dear Judge Cote:
On behalf of defendant Scott D. Sullivan, we write to request
that counsel for Mr. Sullivan be excused from attending the Final
Approval Hearings for the settlements in the above-referenced
actions on September 9, 2005 and November 11, 2005, respectively.
As the Court is aware, Mr. Sullivan has forfeited virtually all
of his assets in settlement of these actions. Continuing to fund
legal expenses for these civil actions is no longer feasible.
Since the issues likely to be raised can be fully addressed by
class counsel, and given the Court's preliminary approval of the
settlement, the absence of Mr. Sullivan's counsel should cause no
delay in the proceedings. We therefore respectfully request that
counsel for Mr. Sullivan be excused from attending the hearings.
Thank you for your consideration of this request.
