Do I need to file a motion in the Southern District of Florida to appear pro hac vice or do I need to associate local counsel?

Please note this answer pertains to MDL cases only.
Attorneys admitted to practice and in good standing of the bar of any United States District Court will be admitted to practice in this litigation upon the filing of a Notice of Appearance in (1) the Master File and (2) the particular action(s) in which they seek to appear. The requirements of Rule 4 of the Special Rules Governing the Admission and Practice of Attorneys (contained in the Local Rules of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida) are waived. Attorneys, upon filing of a Notice of Appearance, will be permitted to electronically receive Notices of Electronic Filing provided the Notice of Appearance includes a request to receive such Notices and provides an e-mail address for the Attorney. Attorneys admitted to practice in this litigation pursuant to this Section are authorized to file documents conventionally as this District does not currently have any mechanism allowing for electronic filing by attorneys located outside of the Southern District of Florida.
