As you know, your name appears on the service list of a document filed with this Court in
Case #10-23235-CIV-Hoeveler. Our records, however, indicate that you are not a member of the
Southern District of Florida Bar. Pursuant to Local Rule 4(b) of the Special Rules Governing the
Admission and Practice of Attorneys, only members of the Bar of this District may appear as
attorneys in this Court except when appearance pro hac vice is permitted by the Court.
In order to appear and participate in a particular case in this Court, you must be an attorney
who is a member in good standing of the bar of any United States Court, or of the highest Court of
any State or Territory or Insular Possession of the United States. You are then required to file a
written application, filed by counsel admitted to practice in this District, requesting permission to
appear and participate in a particular case. A certification that you have studied this Court’s Local
Rules shall accompany the application. If permission to appear pro hac vice is granted, such
appearance shall not constitute formal admission or authorize you to file documents via CM/ECF.
The Rule also requires that the application designate a member of the Bar of this Court who
maintains an office in this State for the practice of law and who is authorized to file through the
Court’s electronic filing system, to act as local counsel with whom the Court and opposing counsel
may readily communicate, upon whom filings shall be served, who shall be required to electronically
file all documents and things that may be filed electronically, and who shall be responsible for filing
documents in compliance with the CM/ECF Administrative Procedures. The Rule further requires
that the application be accompanied by a written statement from local counsel consenting to the
designation, and the address and telephone number of local counsel.

CM/ECF User in this District, but may access the electronic record through the PACER System (see

exception of the original application, attorneys so admitted will be required to electronically
file all documents through their local counsel. An application to appear pro hac vice must be filed

constitutional, statutory, and societal responsibilities for all who seek justice.”
in the conventional manner along with the applicable filing fee. Although attorneys granted pro hac
vice appearance will not be permitted to file electronically, they will be able to electronically receive
Notices of Electronic Filing. Such requests should be included in your application to appear pro hac
vice and in the accompanying proposed order. The e-mail address for the attorney(s) seeking
admission must be provided in both the motion and proposed order in order to receive electronic
Administrative Order 96-61 provides that an admissions fee of $75.00 is to be paid by every
attorney petitioning the Court to appear and participate in a particular case under Rule 4(b). The fee
should be paid by check made payable to “U.S. Courts” and accompanied by your motion and
