His character wasn't written out, he just didn't appear in season 6.
- do you know what happened with the actor? did his contract run out and decided not to renew? Or did the exes decided they didnt need a laywer on the show anymore? <--which I did read they hired some woman as CI's new lawyer but she only stayed one day, then i heard they hired some other woman..but I haven't heard anything else about it.

The elegant (and much missed) Courtney B. Vance will take on a new TV role.
Bassett's partner on 'ER' is her life partner, Vance
The Chicago Sun Times August 19, 2008
"It turns out Angela Bassett's new doctor character on "ER" is married, and her husband will be played by Bassett's real-life mate.
Courtney B. Vance has agreed to a multiepisode guest star stint as the partner of Bassett's Cate Banfield, an attending physician just back from doing tsunami relief work in Indonesia. It's the couple's first time acting together.
Vance, whose film credits include "The Preacher's Wife" and "The Hunt for Red October," spent five years on NBC's "Law & Order: Criminal Intent."
