IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
For the Northern District of California

PAULA L. BLAIR, individually and on
behalf of all others similarly situated,
No. C 16-02335 WHA
ORDER DENYING PRO
HAC VICE APPLICATION
OF ATTORNEY ROBERT
RENT-A-CENTER, INC., a Delaware
corporation, RENT-A-CENTER WEST,
INC., a Delaware corporation, and DOES
The pro hac vice application of Attorney Robert Friedman (Dkt. No. 30) is DENIED for
failing to comply with 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. 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: June 22, 2017.
