Cooper et al v. Pacific Gas & Electric Retirement Plan et al
ORDER DENYING 32 PRO HAC VICE APPLICATION by Hon. William Alsup. (whalc2, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 1/31/2017)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
KYLE COOPER, et al.,
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
No. C 16-06355 WHA
THE PACIFIC GAS & ELECTRIC
RETIREMENT PLAN and EMPLOYEE
BENEFIT COMMITTEE OF THE
PACIFIC GAS & ELECTRIC
ORDER DENYING PRO
HAC VICE APPLICATION
The pro hac vice application of Attorney David Levine (Dkt. No. 32) is DENIED for
failing to comply with Local Rule 11-3. That rule requires an applicant to 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 identifies only the
state of bar membership — e.g., “the bar of New York” — is inadequate under the rule because
it fails to identify a specific court. 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: January 31, 2017.
