1 2 3 4 5 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 6 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 7 8 9 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 PAULA L. BLAIR, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Plaintiff, 12 No. C 16-02335 WHA v. 14 15 ORDER DENYING PRO HAC VICE APPLICATION OF ATTORNEY ROBERT FRIEDMAN RENT-A-CENTER, INC., a Delaware corporation, RENT-A-CENTER WEST, INC., a Delaware corporation, and DOES 1–50, inclusive, Defendants. 13 / 16 17 The pro hac vice application of Attorney Robert Friedman (Dkt. No. 30) is DENIED for 18 failing to comply with Local Rule 11-3. The local rule requires that an applicant certify that “he 19 or 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 only identifies the 22 state of bar membership — such as “the bar of Texas” — is inadequate under the local rule 23 because it fails to identify a specific court. While the application fee does not need to be paid 24 again, the application cannot be processed until a corrected form is submitted. 25 26 IT IS SO ORDERED. 27 28 Dated: June 22, 2017. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
