CIVIL ACTION NO.: 3:15-CV-215-MPM-SAA
GGNSC BATESVILLE, LLC d/ba
GOLDEN LIVING CENTER BATESVILLE, et al.
Plaintiff has requested that pro hac vice counsel, Deena K. Arnold, be allowed to appear
at depositions on behalf of plaintiff without the presence of local counsel. Docket 43. Local
Rule 83.1(b)(1) states that “every deposition, mediation, conference or hearing must be attended
by at least one attorney of record admitted to the general practice of law in the district court in
which the action is pending.” Because the Local Rules explicitly require participation by local
counsel at depositions, plaintiff’s motion will be DENIED. However, under the circumstances
of this particular case, local counsel will be allowed to participate in the depositions
SO ORDERED, this the 31st day of May, 2016.
