MCPHEARSON v. THE MICHAELS CO., C034390

Because both plaintiff and the employee who entered into a settlement agreement waived the conflict of interest posed by an attorney representing them, there was no justification to disqualify the lawyer, in line with Gilbert v. National Corp. for Housing Partnerships (1999) 71 Cal.App.4th 1240.
