UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF MASSACHUSETTS BOSTON DIVISION STUDENTS FOR FAIR ADMISSIONS, INC, Plaintiff, v. PRESIDENT AND FELLOWS OF HARVARD COLLEGE (HARVARD CORPORATION), Civil Action No. 1:14-cv-14176-ADB Defendant. PROPOSED DEFENDANT-INTERVENORS’ MOTION TO STAY PROCEEDINGS PENDING APPEAL Consistent with the Notice of Appeal filed July 13, 2015 (Docket No. 60), and for the reasons set forth more fully in the accompanying memorandum, Proposed Defendant-Intervenors M.B., K.C., Y.D., G.E., A.G., I.G., R.H., J.L., R.S., Sarah Cole, Fadhal Moore, Arjini Kumari Nawal, Itzel Libertad Vasquez-Rodriguez, and Keyanna Wigglesworth (“the Students”) respectfully move to stay this litigation while the First Circuit resolves whether they have the right to intervene as parties to this case. The Students additionally support Harvard’s Motion to Stay proceedings while the Supreme Court decides Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, No. 14-981(Fisher II ) (Docket No. 58) because that stay would largely overlap with a stay pending appeal. Respectfully submitted, Dated: August 5, 2015 /s/ Priya A.
