Breaking: DOJ To Seek Stay in 5th Circuit Today

March 12th, 2015

In a filing, DOJ announced that today they will seek a stay in the 5th Circuit from Judge Hanen’s ruling.

Defendants file this supplement to their Emergency Expedited Motion to Stay the Court’s February 16, 2015 Order Pending Appeal (“stay motion”) [ECF No. 150], to inform the Court that today they will seek a stay of this Court’s preliminary injunction before the Fifth Circuit in light of the urgent circumstances and critical federal interests at issue, including Defendants’ need to protect national security, public safety, and the integrity of the border. Defendants also wish to assure the Court that they take very seriously the Court’s March 9, 2015 Order and will be prepared to address fully the issues identified therein at the hearing scheduled for March 19, 2015.
