State of Washington et al. v. Donald J. Trump, et al., Case No. 2:17-cv-00141JLR
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Court of Appeals decision, the States assume the district court briefing schedule is no longer
applicable.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.
