SECTION 9403
Referral to another judicial district
Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) CHAPTER 8, ARTICLE 94
Rule 9403. Referral to another judicial district. Notwithstanding
rule 9402, any application for admission to practice pending before a
committee, may be referred to the committee for another judicial
district in the same or another department by order or direction of the
presiding justice of the appellate division of the department embracing
the district in which the application is pending. Such order or
direction may be made only upon the written request of the chairman or
acting chairman of the committee before which the application is pending
and only upon his written certification either:

1. that the applicant, since he applied to take the bar examination or
to dispense with such examination or since he applied on motion to be
admitted to practice, has changed his actual residence to such other
judicial district in the same or other department, or, if not a resident
of the state, has acquired full-time employment in or changed his place
of full-time employment to such other judicial district in the same or
other department; or

2. that the majority of the members of such committee are not
qualified to vote on the application or have disqualified themselves
from voting or have refrained from voting thereon; or

3. that the members of such committee are equally divided in their
opinion as the application; or

4. that strict compliance with rule 9402 will cause undue hardship to
the applicant.
