ANTONY BLINKEN, ET AL., CASE NO. 1:21-CV-01689-JLT-SKO STIPULATION AND ORDER TEMPORARILY STAYING CASE AND VACATING SCHEDULING CONFERENCE (Doc. 18) Defendants. 15 16 The Defendants respectfully request to hold this case in temporary abeyance through July 29, 17 2022, and counsel for Plaintiffs does not oppose. 18 In their complaint, Plaintiffs sought review of a decision of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration 19 Services (USCIS) that revoked a Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relatives. Thereafter, USCIS 20 voluntarily reopened the adjudication and, on February 17, 2022, approved the petition. The non-citizen 21 Plaintiffs are currently scheduled for a consular interview on their visa applications on July 17, 2022. 22 Defendants contend that USCIS’s February 17, 2022, decision moots this case. Plaintiffs have 23 agreed to consider a stipulated dismissal after the completion of the July 17, 2022, consular interview. 24 The parties therefore stipulate that this matter be held in temporary abeyance through July 29, 2022. 25 The parties further request that all other filing deadlines be similarly vacated, and the currently 26 scheduled initial scheduling conference, set for June 7, 2022, be vacated and reset. 27 28 1 30 1 Respectfully submitted, 2 3 Dated: May 9, 2022 PHILLIP A.
