PHV Applicants - Judge Proctor's Policy:   
With respect to applications for pro hac vice status for foreign attorneys, Judge Proctor requires both:
  1. payment of the required fee and
  2. EITHER:
    1. a Certificate of Good Standing from a court to which the applicant has been admitted to practice; OR
    2. an affidavit from the foreign applicant (not from local counsel) stating that he/she is in good standing.

If an application for PHV status lacks one of these elements, Judge will conditionally grant the motion and require that the applicant file the missing item within seven (7) calendar days.
