An Acknowledgment and Notice of Appearance must be filed by all parties within 14 days of receiving the Court's docketing notice. Timely submission of the Acknowledgment and Notice of Appearance will constitute compliance with the requirement to file a FRAP 12(b) Representation Statement. In counseled cases only an attorney whose admission to this Court's bar is current or an attorney with an admission or renewal application pending may file a Notice of Appearance. A pro se party must provide all applicable information on the Acknowledgment and Notice of Appearance form.
If an attorney other than the originally designated lead counsel of record wishes to appear in a case for any reason, that attorney must file a Notice of Appearance of Substitute, Additional, or Amicus Counsel. When an attorney seeks to substitute for the lead counsel of record, the Court will recognize the new attorney as the lead only after the original lead counsel of record files with the Court a letter stating that new lead counsel is about to enter the case.
