Pro Hac Vice

Pro hac vice admissions are governed by LR 83.2(b). To appear in a particular case, an attorney who is not a member of the district's bar must:

  1. be a member in good standing of the bar of any court of the United States or the highest court of any state;
  2. have a member of the district's bar who is actively associated with the attorney file a motion for pro hac vice admission;
  3. attach to the motion an affidavit in compliance with LR 83.2(b)(1); and
  4. submit with the motion a $100 fee (per person) via credit card or ACH debit.
