UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
STATE OF WASHINGTON, et al.,
ORDER DENYING MOTION
FOR LEAVE TO APPEAR AS
DONALD J. TRUMP, et al.,
CASE NO. C17-0141JLR
Before the court is the motion of Movant Lamar C. Chapman, III, for leave to
appear as amicus curiae. (Chapman Mot. (Dkt. # 185).) On February 14, 2017, the court
issued an order setting forth the procedures applicable to the filing of amicus curiae briefs
in this proceeding. (AC Order (Dkt. # 84).) Mr. Chapman’s motion fails to adhere to the
procedures set forth in that order. Namely, Mr. Chapman fails to “identify the pending
motion to which [his] amicus curiae brief relates.” (Id. at 2; see generally Chapman
Mot.) The only motion pending at the time Mr. Chapman filed his motion was
Defendants’ motion for a stay. (See Def. Mot. (Dkt. # 175).) Mr. Chapman’s filing does

not reference Defendants’ motion. (See generally Chapman Mot.) Further, the court has
reviewed Mr. Chapman’s filing and concludes that his proposed amicus curiae brief
would not provide any helpful information beyond what the parties can provide. (See AC
Order at 1.) Accordingly, the court DENIES Mr. Chapman’s motion (Dkt. # 185).
Dated this 17th day of May, 2017.
