My fingerprints were rejected and the State Bar rejection letter is requiring that the Live Scan reference the Original Applicant Tracking Identifier (ATI) for re-submittal. What does that mean?
When the DOJ/FBI rejects an individual’s fingerprints, the individual must be re-fingerprinted by the same Live Scan vendor to avoid paying another processing fee. The Live Scan vendor must submit the subsequent set of fingerprints as a re-submittal using the Original Applicant Tracking Identifier (OATI). The OATI refers to the ATI number that is associated with the fingerprints that were previously rejected. If the Live Scan vendor does not enter the OATI correctly or fails to enter the OATI when submitting the subsequent set of fingerprints, the DOJ/FBI will not associate the subsequent set of fingerprints as a re-submittal. The OATI indicates to the DOJ/FBI there were a previous set of fingerprints submitted through the Live Scan process and rejected. Attorneys should contact the State Bar when a Live Scan vendor fails to re-submit the fingerprints correctly and multiple rejections occur.
*The fingerprinting deadline falls on Sunday, December 1, 2019. Please note that Active attorneys who still have not complied by day’s end on Monday, December 2, 2019, will be enrolled as Involuntarily Inactive effective December 3, 2019
