A Newark federal judge has denied pro hac vice admission to a disability lawyer from Florida based on his frequent use of that mechanism to practice in the District of New Jersey.

In denying the motion by local counsel for the plaintiff to admit John Fuller of North Miami, Fla., in a suit over alleged violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act at a shopping center, the court noted that the case would have been the 24th time in the past two years that Fuller was admitted to practice in a New Jersey ADA case.
