ORDER AND JUDGMENT(*)
Before LUCERO, McCONNELL, and TYMKOVICH, Circuit Judges.

We affirm the district court's order granting Mr. Gruebel's motion to withdraw as counsel.(1)
Entered for the Court
*. This order and judgment is not binding precedent, except under the doctrines of law of the case, res judicata, and collateral estoppel. The court generally disfavors the citation of orders and judgments; nevertheless, an order and judgment may be cited under the terms and conditions of 10th Cir. R. 36.3.
1. On June 28, 2005, this court issued an order denying the motion to withdraw of Mr. Turrentine's counsel, Mr. Gruebel. At the time we issued this order, the panel was unaware of the district court's June 21, 2005 order allowing the withdrawal of Mr. Gruebel on the grounds of conflict of interests. Given the conflict between our June 28 order and the district court's June 21 order, this panel sua sponte withdraws its order denying withdrawal. We hereby grant Mr. Gruebel's request to withdraw as appellate counsel.
