(Docs. 16, 17) Both demonstrate good standing in the courts of Tennessee 19 (Doc. 16 at 4; Doc. 17 at 4) and both have paid the fee for admission. However, both designate 20 Jonathan Shub as counsel with whom the Court and opposing counsel may readily communicate. Id. 21 Though this complies, technically, with Local Rule 180(b)(2)(iii), it does not truly comply with the 22 intent of the provision. In any event, the Court has determined recently that Mr. Shub is not a member 23 of this Court. (Doc. 18) As a result, the petitions do not comply with Local Rule 180(b)(2)(ii) [“The 24 attorney shall also designate in the application a member of the Bar of this Court with whom the Court 25 and opposing counsel may readily communicate . . .”] 26 /// 27 /// 28 /// 1 1 Thus, the petitions to appear pro hac vice are DENIED without prejudice. 2 3 4 5 IT IS SO ORDERED.
