NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
PATRICK HENDRICKS, individually and on
behalf of all others similarly situated,
United States District Court
Northern District of California
ORDER DENYING MOTION OF PLAINTIFF TO
APPOINT INTERIM CLASS COUNSEL
Case No.: 13-CV-00729 YGR
Plaintiff has filed a Motion to Appoint Interim Class Counsel Pursuant to Federal Rule of
Civil Procedure 23(g)(3). While interim appointment under Rule 23(g)(3) may be useful where
there are competing applicants to serve as class counsel within a particular lawsuit, Plaintiff has
failed to show it would serve any legitimate purpose under the circumstances here. Therefore, the
Motion is DENIED.1 This is without prejudice to renew in the event appointment of interim counsel
becomes necessary, for example, if multiple cases are consolidated in a single venue.
This Order Terminates Docket Number 14.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Date: April 12, 2013

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT JUDGE
