Idaho Appellate Rule 9. Appearance of attorneys not licensed in Idaho

Upon written motion of a licensed Idaho attorney, at least 14 days before a hearing or argument, and upon order of the Supreme Court an attorney not licensed in Idaho may be permitted to appear and argue before the Supreme Court in association with such Idaho licensed attorney.  The motion, or a supporting statement, shall certify that the attorney not licensed in Idaho is a licensed attorney in good standing in another specific state or jurisdiction and shall otherwise be in substantially the form found in Idaho Bar Commission Rule 227(j).  If an attorney has been granted pro hac vice admission pursuant to Idaho Bar Commission Rule to appear in any case, then the attorney may continue to appear in that case before the Supreme Court without obtaining an order pursuant to this rule.
