Case 2:17-cv-00141-JLR Document 70 Filed 02/09/17 Page 1 of 1 Bob Ferguson ATTORNEY GENERAL OF WASHINGTON Administration Division PO Box 40100 ● Olympia, WA 98504-0100 ● (360) 753-6200 February 9, 2017 The Clerk of the Court United States Court Clerk’s Office 700 Stewart Street, Suite 2310 Seattle, WA 98101-9906 RE: State of Washington et al. v. Donald J. Trump, et al., Case No. 2:17-cv-00141JLR Dear Clerk: This afternoon, the Ninth Circuit denied an emergency motion for a stay of the temporary injunction imposed by Judge Robart. The Court of Appeals held that the district court order “possesses the qualities of an appealable preliminary injunction” and established a briefing schedule for the appeal of the district court order. Washington v. Trump, Case No. 17-35105, slip op. at 8, Dkt. Entry 134 (9th Cir. 2017); id. at Dkt. Entry 135 (ECF Nos. 68, 69). In light of the Court of Appeals decision, the States assume the district court briefing schedule is no longer applicable. The States will not be filing a preliminary injunction motion and brief in the district court tonight, unless we receive contrary guidance from the district court. Sincerely, s/ Noah G. Purcell NOAH G. PURCELL Solicitor General Cc: Michelle Bennett Jacob Campion
