ORDER DENYING PRO HAC
VICE APPLICATIONS OF
ATTORNEYS PATRICK J. LAMB
AND PAT HEPTIG
ALIPH, INC. and ALIPHCOM, INC.,
No. C 09-1714 WHA
The pro hac vice applications of Attorneys Patrick J. Lamb and Pat Heptig (Dkt. Nos.
274, 275) are DENIED for failing to comply with Local Rule 11-3. The local rule requires that an
applicant certify that “he or she is an active member in good standing of the bar of a United
States Court or of the highest court of another State or the District of Columbia, specifying such
bar” (emphasis added). Filling out the pro hac vice form from the district court website such
that it only identifies the state of bar membership — such as “the bar of Texas” — is inadequate
under the local rule because it fails to identify a specific court (such as the Supreme Court of
Texas). While the application fee does not need to be paid again, the application cannot be
processed until a corrected form is submitted.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: December 2, 2013.
