ORDER DENYING 28 PRO HAC VICE APPLICATION by Hon. William Alsup. (whalc2, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 1/4/2017)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
No. C 16-06180 WHA
ORDER DENYING PRO
HAC VICE APPLICATION
OPENTV, INC., and NAGRAVISION SA,
The pro hac vice application of Attorney Jason Liss (Dkt. No. 28) is DENIED for failing
to comply with Local Rule 11-3. That rule requires an applicant to 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 identifies only the state of bar
membership — e.g., “the bar of Massachusetts” — is inadequate under the 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: January 4, 2017.
