Before the Court are Motions to Dismiss (Doc Nos. 10 & 26) filed by Defendants Governor
William E. Haslam and Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn in two cases that
have been consolidated for the purposes of case management, discovery, and pretrial motions. For
the reasons explained in the accompanying Memorandum Opinion, the Motions are hereby
GRANTED in part and DENIED in part. Count 2, 3, 6, and 7 of each Complaint is
DISMISSED. Counts 8 and 9 will be DISMISSED only insofar as they challenge Tennessee’s
restrictions on where Plaintiffs may obtain treatment, and Defendants’ requests to dismiss those
claims and Count 1 will otherwise be DENIED. Defendants shall file a responsive pleading to
each Complaint within fourteen days of the date of this Order. FED. R. CIV. P. 12(a)(4)(A).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
