TRUMP, et al., Defendants. 14 15 CASE NO. C17-0141JLR Before the court is the motion of Movant Lamar C. Chapman, III, for leave to 16 appear as amicus curiae. (Chapman Mot. (Dkt. # 185).) On February 14, 2017, the court 17 issued an order setting forth the procedures applicable to the filing of amicus curiae briefs 18 in this proceeding. (AC Order (Dkt. # 84).) Mr. Chapman’s motion fails to adhere to the 19 procedures set forth in that order. Namely, Mr. Chapman fails to “identify the pending 20 motion to which [his] amicus curiae brief relates.” (Id. at 2; see generally Chapman 21 Mot.) The only motion pending at the time Mr. Chapman filed his motion was 22 Defendants’ motion for a stay. (See Def. Mot. (Dkt. # 175).) Mr. Chapman’s filing does ORDER - 1 1 not reference Defendants’ motion. (See generally Chapman Mot.) Further, the court has 2 reviewed Mr. Chapman’s filing and concludes that his proposed amicus curiae brief 3 would not provide any helpful information beyond what the parties can provide. (See AC 4 Order at 1.) Accordingly, the court DENIES Mr. Chapman’s motion (Dkt. # 185). 5 Dated this 17th day of May, 2017. 6 7 A 8 JAMES L.
