N.D. Cal. Civil L.R. 11-3(b). 24 With regard to whether Mr. Beall is regularly engaged in the practice of law in the State of 25 California, a search of this Court’s electronic filing system indicates that Mr. Beall is listed as an 26 attorney in 7 cases, including this case, filed in this Court between 2012 and the present.
