Before the Court is an Agreed Motion to Stay filed on behalf of Plaintiffs and Certain

that this litigation be stayed until 30 days after the Eighth Circuit has ruled on Plaintiffs’ petition, and if
the petition is accepted, until 30 days after the Eighth Circuit has ruled on the ensuing appeal.
Upon consideration, the Court finds that good cause for a stay of proceedings has been shown.
Accordingly, the motion (ECF No. 227) should be and hereby is GRANTED in part and DENIED in
part. This case is hereby stayed until 7 days after the Eighth Circuit has ruled on Plaintiffs’ petition for
leave to appeal. If the petition is accepted, this case is stayed until 7 days after the Eighth Circuit has
ruled on the appeal.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 14th day of November, 2013.
