Decision

For the reasons set forth below, Claimant’s motion seeking an order permitting Bruce A. Menk, Esq. to appear pro hac vice is granted.

Section 520.11(a)(1) of the Rules for the Court of Appeals permits any court of record, in its discretion, to allow an attorney from another state to appear in any matter before it, pro hac vice.

The Court has reviewed the papers submitted with this application and Mr. Menk has established that he is a member in good standing of the bar of his state (Colorado). The applicant has stated that he has an attorney-client relationship with Claimant. Furthermore, Mr. Menk has stated his familiarity with the standards of professional conduct imposed upon members of the New York bar and has agreed to comply with them and, moreover, understands that he will be subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York with respect to any acts occurring during the course of his participation in this Claim.

Accordingly, it is

ORDERED that Bruce A. Menk is hereby admitted, pro hac vice, to participate in the representation of Claimant in this Claim, and this Claim only, and it is further

ORDERED, for purposes of the records of this Court, that Dennis M. Rothman, Esq. shall remain listed as the attorney of record for Claimant and he shall continue to receive any and all notices or correspondence from this Court, unless ordered otherwise.
