State of California v. Valero Energy Corporation et al
ORDER DENYING PRO HAC VICE APPLICATION OF ATTORNEY STEPHEN WEISSMAN by Hon. William Alsup denying 11 Motion for Pro Hac Vice.(whalc1, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 7/12/2017)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
STATE OF CALIFORNIA
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
No. C 17-03786 WHA
VALERO ENERGY CORPORATION,
VALERO ENERGY PARTNERS LP, and
PLAINS ALL AMERICAN PIPELINE,
ORDER DENYING PRO
HAC VICE APPLICATION
OF ATTORNEY STEPHEN
The pro hac vice application of Attorney Stephen Weissman (Dkt. No. 11) 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 the District of Columbia” — 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: July 12, 2017.
