ORDER DENYING PRO HAC VICE APPLICATION SAPHENA MEDICAL, INC., and ALBERT CHIN, Defendants. / 16 17 The pro hac vice application of Attorney Paul Popeo (Dkt. No. 29) is DENIED for failing 18 to comply with Local Rule 11-3. That rule requires an applicant to certify that “he or she is an 19 active member in good standing of the bar of a United States Court or of the highest court of 20 another State or the District of Columbia, specifying such bar” (emphasis added). Filling out 21 the pro hac vice form from the district court website such that it identifies only the state of bar 22 membership — e.g., “the bar of Massachusetts” — is inadequate under the rule because it fails 23 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 17, 2017. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
