191. A party may ask, in the course of a proceeding, that its lawyer be disavowed and that acts that exceeded the scope of that lawyer’s mandate be repudiated. The application is brought by the party itself or by a specially mandated lawyer and is notified to the disavowed lawyer and the other parties.
After judgment, such a disavowal must be sought by means of an originating application. Execution of the judgment is not stayed unless the court so orders.
If the disavowal is held to be well-founded, the repudiated acts are annulled and the parties, restored to their former state.
