Pro Hac Vice User Registration Procedure:
Attorneys who are admitted in another jurisdiction may appear pro hac vice in the Southern District of Indiana for a specific case or adversary proceeding. To do this, the attorney must file a Motion to Appear Pro Hac Vice along with supporting Affidavit. Only one attorney may be included in each motion.
Pursuant to S. D. Ind. B-5005-1, the attorney is required to become an authorized user in electronic case filing (ECF) before the Motion to Appear Pro Hac Vice may be filed.
To register for ECF: Visit the INSB CM/ECF Registration Page.
Once registered in ECF, the user must electronically file a Motion to Appear Pro Hac Vice and an affidavit confirming admission in another jurisdiction. Note that although the login and password may be used to access any case in the Southern District of Indiana, a separate Motion to Appear Pro Hac Vice along with Affidavit must be filed for every case in which the user wishes to appear pro hac vice. See full instructions and sample forms
A pro hac vice filing fee is due for each Motion to Appear Pro Hac Vice. The fee must be paid online via pay.gov.
