Tentative Ruling

Nichols, et al. v. Balmoral Farm, Inc., et al., Case No. 24SMCV00791

Hearing date June 11, 2024

Defendants’ Balmoral Farm, Inc., et al. Application to Appear Pro Hac Vice (UNOPPOSED)


Bradley J. Barmen, a member of the Ohio bar, applies to be admitted pro hac vice for defendants. Barmen submitted a declaration but is missing some required affirmations under Cal. Rules of Court, rule 9.40(d). Barmen’s application states the title of each case in which he has filed an application to appear as counsel pro hac vice in California in the preceding two years but does not state “the date of each application, and whether or not it was granted” as Cal. Rules of Court, rule 9.40(d)(5) requires. The application is unopposed.


Barmen’s application cannot be granted until he files an application that includes mandatory statements about the dates of his applications and whether or not they were granted. The matter will be continued to allow for supplemental documentation to be filed.
