Ch J Maurice B (“Mighty Mo”) Foley is always ready to seek out new members for the Tax Court Bar. If ever my dream of a US Tax Court Bar Association comes true (see my blogpost “I Dreamed a Dream,” 11/25/20), I would nominate a Membership Committee Chair, if I could find one with the zeal of Ch J Mighty Mo.

Perhaps His Honor would chair the Judicial Liaison Committee.

Today, Ch J Mighty Mo invites “Ms. Laura M. Gallo” [sic; I think you meant Laura M. Gallo, Esq., Judge] to “come along and sing the song and join the jamboree!” as another perhaps more prominent aggregation would say.

The Order is Carolina Vasquez, Docket No. 17804-21, filed 8/16/21.

“The petition filed to commence this case…did not bear the original signature on the petition of petitioner, however, bore a signature of an individual who purportedly is petitioner’s counsel who is not admitted to practice before the Court, as required by the Tax Court Rules of Practice and Procedure.” Order, at p. 1.

“At this juncture, Laura M. Gallo will not be associated with this case until she is able to practice before this Court.” Order, at p. 1.

So Ms. Gallo, pony up the fifty Georges and a current certificate of good standing (not older than 90 days) from any of the Supreme Court of the United States, or of the highest or appropriate court of any State or of the District of Columbia, or any commonwealth, territory, or possession of the United States. And e-file the online forms of admissions application and Entry of Appearance.

Meantime, get your client to wet-ink sign and snail-mail the ratification.

And welcome aboard.
