1 2 3 4 5 6 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 7 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 8 9 United States District Court For the Northern District of California 10 11 THE REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA and JANET NAPOLITANO, in her official capacity as President of the University of California, 12 Plaintiffs, No. C 17-05211 WHA No. C 17-05235 WHA No. C 17-05329 WHA No. C 17-05380 WHA 13 v. 14 15 16 UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY and ELAINE DUKE, in her official capacity as Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, CASE MANAGEMENT ORDER FOR ALL DACA ACTIONS IN THIS DISTRICT Defendants. 17 / 18 19 After a case management conference at which counsel in all four cases spoke and with 20 the benefit of some agreements, the Court now sets the following case management schedule for 21 all DACA cases in this district: 22 1. The four above-numbered civil actions in this district all challenge the 23 rescission of the DACA program by the United States Department of 24 Homeland Security. All of these related cases will be coordinated 25 (and possibly later consolidated for trial) as follows. 26 2. The four sets of plaintiffs are referred to collectively herein as “all 27 plaintiffs,” and various defendants in the four cases are referred to 28 collectively herein as “all defendants.” 1 3. All parties shall serve their initial disclosures under FRCP 26, and all defendants shall file and serve the administrative record by NOON ON 3 OCTOBER 6, 2017. After a party makes its FRCP 26 disclosure, it may 4 take discovery. All plaintiffs shall be permitted to serve up to a 5 combined total of TWENTY INTERROGATORIES and TWENTY 6 DOCUMENT REQUESTS, all narrowly directed, plus a reasonable 7 number of depositions. All defendants may serve an equal number of 8 interrogatories and document requests plus a reasonable number of 9 depositions. The time to respond to all discovery requests is cut in 10 United States District Court For the Northern District of California 2 half. All discovery disputes are hereby REFERRED to MAGISTRATE 11 JUDGE SALLIE KIM to be heard and determined on an expedited 12 schedule. 13 4. A tutorial on DACA, the history of “deferred action,” the history of 14 APA rulemaking for deferred action programs and for analogous 15 contexts, and immigration procedure generally is set for OCTOBER 3, 16 2017, AT 8:00 A.M. One or more counsel for each side shall present. 17 Please avoid argument and adhere to updating the judge on the 18 historical and administrative context. 19 5. Motions for summary judgment, provisional relief, or to dismiss are 20 due by NOON ON NOVEMBER 1, 2017. All plaintiffs shall file one 21 joint brief on their statutory claims, and another on their constitutional 22 claims, each brief limited to 25 PAGES. A plaintiff may, if truly 23 essential, add a very short supplemental brief on any point unique to 24 that plaintiff. All defendants may file a joint brief in support of their 25 own motion of up to 50 PAGES but the Court would prefer that the 26 briefing be divided between two memoranda, one devoted to statutory 27 claims and one devoted to constitutional claims, both adding to fifty or 28 fewer pages. Any amicus brief must be filed on the same date as the 2 1 brief it supports, each limited to 15 PAGES. Amici may not submit 2 evidentiary material, so their briefs should include everything within 3 their 15 pages. 4 6. Summary judgment and provisional relief motions must be supported 5 by proper declarations under oath. Simply attaching exhibits to briefs 6 will not do. Foundation must be laid under oath. Motions to dismiss, 7 however, need only be directed to the complaints, but if extraneous 8 matter is referenced, then it too must be supported by declaration. 9 7. Oppositions are due by NOON ON NOVEMBER 22, 2017. The United States District Court For the Northern District of California 10 oppositions shall be organized to mirror the organization of the 11 openings. No brief shall exceed the length of the relevant opening 12 brief. All plaintiffs shall file a single joint opposition, and all 13 defendants shall file a single joint opposition, each party being 14 permitted to file a short individual supplement to the extent truly 15 needed for issues unique to that party. 16 8. There will be no page limit on declarations and exhibits, but please be 17 reasonable. All exhibits for a side should be included in that side’s 18 joint and tabbed appendix of exhibits (the tabs should protrude for 19 ease of reference). The “individual” exhibits should be included in the 20 joint appendix as well. The exhibits should be numbered. The 21 appendix, however, should not include any item already in the 22 administrative record. Please highlight in yellow any cited passage. 23 Declarations laying foundation for admissibility may simply refer to 24 the exhibits by tab number. 25 9. Reply briefs are due by NOON ON DECEMBER 8, 2017. The replies 26 shall be organized to mirror the organization of the openings (and the 27 oppositions). The briefs shall not exceed half of the pages used in the 28 opposition briefs to which they respond (not to exceed 30 PAGES in 3 1 any event). There shall be no reply declarations except for very good 2 cause, the Court being of the view that it is unfair for a movant to 3 deprive the other side of its chance to respond to evidentiary material. 4 If a brief quotes from any deposition or other exhibit, then the brief 5 should quote the entire passage, not just the helpful part. Please do the 6 same for quotations from case law. 7 10. A hearing on all motions is set for DECEMBER 20, 2017, AT 8:00 A.M. 8 11. If necessary, a BENCH TRIAL will be held on FEBRUARY 5, 2018, AT 9 United States District Court For the Northern District of California 10 11 7:30 A.M., with a FINAL PRETRIAL CONFERENCE to be held on JANUARY 24, 2018, AT 2:00 P.M. For now, all filings should be made in any civil action to which they pertain and, for the 12 sake of coordination, in the low-numbered action (No. C 17-05211 WHA). Counsel shall confer 13 and recommend any better way of organizing the filing system for these cases, including, for 14 example, the possibility of filing everything in the low-numbered action and thereby deeming it 15 to be filed in all actions. Counsel may also stipulate to tweaks in the wording of this order (but 16 not to its substance or timeline). Any such fully-stipulated modifications must be submitted by 17 SEPTEMBER 29, AT NOON, failing which this order shall control. 18 19 IT IS SO ORDERED. 20 21 Dated: September 22, 2017. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 4
