McAndrews' petition for permission to practice in a particular case (#6) filed on May 29, 2007. Pursuant to Local Rule IA 10-2(a), "[a]n attorney who is not a member of the bar of this court, who has been retained or appointed to appear in a particular case may do so only with permission of the court." Furthermore, under LR IA 10-2(i)(1), "[i]t shall be presumed in civil and criminal cases, absent special circumstances, and only upon showing of good cause, that more than five (5) appearances by any attorney or firm of attorneys in the same office location granted under this rule in a three (3) year period is excessive use of this rule." Mr. McAndrews and other attorneys in his firm have been granted permission to practice under LR IA 10-2 in at least five cases and currently have petitions pending in at least two others. Mr. McAndrews has failed to indicate any special circumstances why his petition to practice in this case should be granted in spite of the excessive number of petitions already granted and pending in the District of Nevada.
