12/21/2015 Order filed. This court is in receipt of appellant's pro per "SUPPLEMENTAL BRIEF ...." Appellant is represented by appointed counsel. "Once appointed, the attorney has the exclusive right to appear and control court proceedings as long as fundamental rights are not denied; neither the party himself nor another attorney can be recognized in the conduct or disposition of the case." (In re Walker (1976) 56 Cal.App.3d 225, 228; People v. Scott (1998) 64 Cal.App.4th 550.) Consequently, appellant's requests are denied. To the extent appellant is requesting this court to appoint new counsel, the request is denied. The filing by counsel of a brief pursuant to People v. Wende (1979) 25 Cal.3d 436 does not, by itself, constitute grounds to remove counsel. (Cf. People v. Wende, supra, 25 Cal.3d at p. 442.) After the filing of a Wende brief, "there may be practical benefits to the court and the client from counsel's remaining on the case." (Ibid.) Moreover, the filing of such a brief obligates this court to conduct a review of the entire record to determine whether there are any arguable issues that should be raised on appellant's behalf. Thus, counsel for appellant has secured "a more complete review for his client when he cannot find any arguable issues than when he raises specific issues, for a review of the entire record [by the appellate court] is not necessarily required in the latter situation." (Ibid.) The Clerk/Administrator of this court is directed to forward a copy of appellant's supplemental brief to appointed counsel for her consideration.
