#19-56 Sealutions, LLC v. Schwab, S254818. (B286897; nonpublished opinion; Los Angeles County Superior Court; BC546925.)

#19-56 Sealutions, LLC v. Schwab, S254818. (B286897; nonpublished opinion; Los Angeles County Superior Court; BC546925.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal issued an order precluding former counsel for the appellant from filing a brief on appeal. The court ordered briefing deferred pending decision in K.J. v. Los Angeles Unified School Dist., S241057 (#17-180), which presents the following issue: Does the Court of Appeal lack jurisdiction over an appeal from an order imposing sanctions on an attorney if the notice of appeal is brought in the name of the client rather than in the name of the attorney?
