Federal court records indicate that two of the attorneys representing the assisted living center ManorCare have withdrawn themselves from the case.
ManorCare is both a defendant and third-party plaintiff in the case.
Attorneys Paul Thompson and Matthew Knowles with the firm McDermott, Will & Emery have left the suit.
In March the victims of the outbreak dropped their civil suit against ManorCare and formed a joint lawsuit with ManorCare against Trinity, in connection with the outbreak that started in 2013 where more than 50 people in the Minot area contracted the illness.
ManorCare is still represented by attorney Randall Bakke out of Bismarck and Michael Kendall.
