1 2 3 4 5 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 6 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 7 8 9 KYLE COOPER, et al., 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 12 No. C 16-06355 WHA Plaintiffs, v. 14 THE PACIFIC GAS & ELECTRIC RETIREMENT PLAN and EMPLOYEE BENEFIT COMMITTEE OF THE PACIFIC GAS & ELECTRIC RETIREMENT PLAN, 15 Defendants. 13 / 16 17 ORDER DENYING PRO HAC VICE APPLICATION The pro hac vice application of Attorney David Levine (Dkt. No. 32) is DENIED for 18 failing to comply with Local Rule 11-3. That rule requires an applicant to certify that “he or 19 she is an active member in good standing of the bar of a United States Court or of the highest 20 court of another State or the District of Columbia, specifying such bar” (emphasis added). 21 Filling out the pro hac vice form from the district court website such that it identifies only the 22 state of bar membership — e.g., “the bar of New York” — is inadequate under the rule because 23 it fails to identify a specific court. While the application fee does not need to be paid again, the 24 application cannot be processed until a corrected form is submitted. 25 26 IT IS SO ORDERED. 27 28 Dated: January 31, 2017. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
