1 2 3 4 5 6 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 7 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 8 9 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 COMCAST CABLE COMMUNICATIONS, LLC, Plaintiff, 12 13 No. C 16-06180 WHA v. ORDER DENYING PRO HAC VICE APPLICATION 14 OPENTV, INC., and NAGRAVISION SA, 15 Defendants. / 16 17 The pro hac vice application of Attorney Jason Liss (Dkt. No. 28) is DENIED for failing 18 to comply with Local Rule 11-3. That rule requires an applicant to certify that “he or she is an 19 active member in good standing of the bar of a United States Court or of the highest court of 20 another State or the District of Columbia, specifying such bar” (emphasis added). Filling out 21 the pro hac vice form from the district court website such that it identifies only the state of bar 22 membership — e.g., “the bar of Massachusetts” — is inadequate under the rule because it fails 23 to identify a specific court. While the application fee does not need to be paid again, the 24 application cannot be processed until a corrected form is submitted. 25 26 IT IS SO ORDERED. 27 28 Dated: January 4, 2017. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
