Evans et al v. Arizona Cardinals Football Club, LLC et al
ORDER by Judge Alsup denying 57 Motion for Pro Hac Vice; denying 58 Motion for Pro Hac Vice. (whalc2, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 5/24/2016)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
EVANS ET AL,
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
No. C 16-01030 WHA
ORDER DENYING PRO HAC
ARIZONA CARDINALS FOOTBALL
CLUB LLC ET AL,
The pro hac vice applications of Steven Silverman and Phillip James Closius are
DENIED for failing to comply with Civil 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 fees do not need to be paid again, the applications cannot be
processed until corrected forms are submitted.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: May 24, 2016.
