Pursuant to District Local Rule 83.4(e), an attorney may apply for pro hac vice admission to appear and participate in a specific case in the District of Idaho. The attorney seeking pro hac vice admission must be sponsored by an attorney admitted to practice before the Court.
The sponsoring attorney will enter a Motion for Pro Hac Vice Admission on behalf of the attorney seeking admission, using the Pro Hac Vice Admission Form located below. There is a fee of $250 per application. You must file one application per attorney applying for pro hac vice admission.
Upon approval of the motion, the pro hac attorney will be required to register for an ECF account with the District of Idaho. However, if that attorney has registered as a pro hac attorney in a prior case, he or she will not need to register again.
