Murphy Claims he had no notice and did not authorize criminal defense services. 

MRPC 1.5 makes clear  that an attorney need not issue a separate Fee Agreement for each separately charged case. Therefore, the 7 March 2008 agreement and the 8 May 2008 agreement are sufficient to bill Murphy for services and demonstrate his authorization and knowledge.
MRPC 1.5:

(b) The scope of the representation and the basis or rate of the fee and expenses for which the client will be responsible shall be communicated to the client,
preferably in writing, before or within a reasonable time after commencing the representation, except when the lawyer will charge a regularly represented client on the same basis or rate. Any changes in the basis or rate of the fee or expenses shall also be communicated to the client.
So when the court writes that Ross failed to give Murphy notice and failed to obtain permission to render services the Court just lied. Given the court order to Ross to deliver services.
