Lawyers for Plaintiff in Sallie Mae Case Withdraw

I’ve just learned that the lawyers for Michael Zahara, the ex-Sally Mae employee who has filed a Federal False Claims Act against the company alleging “a pattern and practice of fraudulent conduct” in connection with the Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP) have withdrawn from the case. 

The lawyers, Larry Zoglin of Phillips & Cohen, LLP and Kathleen Sweeney of Schembs Sweeney Law, argued that there was “an irremediable breakdown in the trust necessary to sustain the attorney client relationship” with Zahara in their motion to United States Magistrate Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson.  The motion was granted on October 29, 2008, and it’s not yet clear what the implications will be for Zahara’s case.

Here’s the official Entry on the Motion to Withdraw
