Declining and Terminating Representation

1. You work as in-house counsel for a large corporation. You are summarily fired, you believe as a result of your having made complaints about the corporation's discriminatory treatment of you on the basis of your race. You sue for retaliatory discharge under Title VII. May your employer claim that under Rule 1.16(a)(3) you must accept its dismissal and therefore are entitled to neither reinstatement nor damages?

2. You take a product liability case from a client, but the next day you decide that instead you want to take a trip to Greece. May you terminate the representation?

3. You represent a plaintiff in a product liability case. A few days before trial, your client is offered what you think is a very generous settlement that he should snap up. He refuses. May you withdraw?
