1 2 3 4 5 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 6 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 7 8 9 FREESLATE, INC., 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 12 No. C 15-2233 WHA Plaintiff, v. 13 CHEMSPEED TECHNOLOGIES AG and CHEMSPEED TECHNOLOGIES, INC., 14 Defendants. ORDER DENYING PRO HAC VICE APPLICATIONS / 15 16 The pro hac vice applications of Attorneys Thomas Carter, Michelle Eber, Scott 17 Partridge, and Thomas Rooney (Dkt. No. 42–45) are DENIED for failing to comply with Local 18 Rule 11-3. The local rule requires that an applicant certify that “he or she is an active member in 19 good standing of the bar of a United States Court or of the highest court of another State or the 20 District of Columbia, specifying such bar” (emphasis added). Filling out the pro hac vice form 21 from the district court website such that it only identifies the state of bar membership — such as 22 “the bar of Texas” — is inadequate under the local rule because it fails to identify a specific 23 court. While the application fee does not need to be paid again, the application cannot be 24 processed until a corrected form is submitted. 25 26 IT IS SO ORDERED. 27 28 Dated: December 23, 2015. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
