Local Civil Rule 83.5(h) and Local Criminal Rule 57.5(h)

(h) Permission to Participate in Particular Case. The Court’s strong preference is that attorneys seek permanent admission to the Bar of this Court, however, any member in good standing of the Bar of any court of the United States or of the highest court of any state may, upon written or oral motion and payment of the pro hac vice admission fee (which is $120.00), be permitted to appear and participate in a particular case, or in a group of related cases. An attorney must pay the pro hac vice admission fee each time he or she seeks pro hac vice status. A certificate of good standing not older than 30 days from the aforementioned court(s) or an affidavit (or declaration made under the penalty of perjury pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1746) swearing to applicant's current good standing must accompany the motion for admission pro hac vice along with a check for the pro hac vice admission fee payable to: Clerk, U.S. District Court.
