The judge determined that ‘the record does not establish that an attorney-client relationship exists between Mr. Mayaka and Ms. Watts,’ also disregarding Wright’s “Mayaka Declaration” as it had not been adequately authenticated. Further, the judge found that the Trust document failed to identify Mayaka as counsel.”
