DEFENI}ANTS' RESPONSE MOTION TO ADJUDICATE TO STATUTORY LIEN FOR ATTORNEYS' FEES Defendants respondas follows to the Motion Pursuantto Rule 2-652(c)to Adjudicate Statutory Lien for Attomeys'Fees, filed by DavidF. Albright andAlbright & Goertemiller,LLC (collectively referred hereafter "Albright"): to as 1. Although Albright has not withdrawn his appearance from this litigation,

defendants were advisedsomeweeksago that he had beenterminated plaintiffs counsel. as Recently, the contextofan interlocutory in appeal now hasbeendismissed, counsel that new has entered appearance plaintiffs behalf. an on ' 2. Albright assertstlrat the parties have enteredinto a settlement. Although the

parties engaged discussions are in concerning possible a resolution ofthis case, agreement no has beenreached yet. As to Albright's claim for attomeys'fees,defendants as havenot takenany positionwith respect the attorneys' to feesissueotherthanthat this is a matterto be resolved between plaintiffandAlbright. the 3. Albright's Motion requests threeformsof relief, (l) that this actionbe stayed, (2)

that plaintiff and defendants "temporarilyenjoined"from violafing Albright's claimedlien be

and (3) thatplaintiff and defendants providecopiesto him of ',alr communications the last for 180daysbetween them." Defendants respond eachof these to requests folrows. as (a) Now thatAocc's appeal hasbeendismissed, action tfus arready stayed is pursuant the Court,sOrder, to datedFebruary 2003. Thus, 5, 1s furtherstay Orderis necessary. This court need not 'temporarily enjoin" defendants, requested as by Albright. As noted abovg no settlement beenreached yet. has as Albright,s Notice Pursuant Rule 2'642(b)is to a mafterof record. rf andwhenpraintiff becomes entitred to the proceedsof any settlernent or judgment, the Court presumably will adjudicate Albright'slien at that time. Counsel will advise the Court promptly if and when a settlement reached. is Thereis no provisionin the Maryland RuressupportingAlbright,s request for copies communications of between plaintiffand defendants. If andwhena settlement is reached, termsof any the suchsettrement be diSclosed can by the plaintiff to Albright for purposes adjudicating of Albright'sclaim. In the interim, any request Albrightfor by informationis premature. wherefore,defendants respectfutyrequestthat this court defer taking any action on Albright'sMotion- while qettl^'*- + );-^----l t's Motion,while seftlement discussions continue.
