NO. 65]; EXHIBIT “1”;
CERTIFICATE OF SERVICE
March 15, 2017
Judge: Hon. Derrick K. Watson
MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE BRIEF OF AMICI CURIAE
TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES AND OTHER BUSINESSES
IN SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFFS’ MOTION FOR A TEMPORARY
This motion is brought pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil
Procedure 7, Local Rules of Practice for the United States District Court
for the District of Hawaii 7.1 and 7.2, and the Brief of Amici Curiae
Technology Companies and Other Businesses in Support of Plaintiffs’
Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order, attached as Exhibit “1,”
together with the papers and pleadings on file herein.
The undersigned represents that counsel for the Amici have
received the consent of the Plaintiffs to file brief of Amici Curiae.
Further, Defendants’ counsel has represented that Defendants take no
position on the Amici’s motion for leave to file brief of Amici Curiae.
INTEREST OF AMICI CURIAE
Amici curiae are 58 leading businesses from the technology sector
and other parts of the U.S. economy. A list of the Amici is set forth in
Appendix A. These companies operate throughout the United States,
including in Hawai‘i, and collectively employ millions of Americans as
well as hundreds of thousands of individuals from around the globe.
ARGUMENT IN SUPPORT OF LEAVE TO FILE
The role of amici curiae is to assist in a case of general public
interest, to supplement the efforts of counsel, and to draw the court's
attention to law that escaped consideration. Miller-Wohl Co. v. Comm'r
of Labor & Indus. State of Mont., 694 F.2d 203, 204 (9th Cir. 1982);
C.J.S. Amicus Curiae § 6, at 427 (1973).
In this matter, Amici provide an important perspective because a
ruling denying Plaintiffs’ motion for a temporary restraining order
would result in constitutional injuries to employees and customers of
Amici. These injuries would inflict significant and irreparable harm on
U.S. businesses and their employees, stifling the growth of the United
States’ most prominent industries.
As a result, Amici are uniquely suited to inform the Court of the
consequences to the United States’ burgeoning industries should the
temporary restraining order be denied.
Amici respectfully request that this Court grant leave for the
Amici to file their Brief of Amici Curiae Technology Companies and
Other Businesses in Support of Plaintiffs’ Motion for a Temporary
Restraining Order, attached as Exhibit “1”.
DATED: Honolulu, Hawai‘i, March 14, 2017.
