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.
