TEXT ORDER by JUDGE THOMAS D. SCHROEDER on 12/16/2016. Before the court are the parties’ Joint Motion to Stay Proceedings Pending the Supreme Court Decision in Gloucester Cnty. Sch. Bd. v. G.G. (Doc. 182 in 1:16CV236 and Doc. 221 in 1:16CV425). All parties agree to a stay of further proceedings pending decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, but the United States seeks a ruling on their Preliminary Injunction motion. UNC Defendants’ Statement (Doc. 180 in 16cv236, Doc. 220 in 16cv425); Legislators’ Statement (Doc. 181 in 16CV236, Doc. 223 in 16cv425); Carcaño Plaintiffs’ Statement (Doc. 184 in 16cv236); United States’ Statement (Doc. 222 in 16cv425). In the interest of judicial economy, upon the agreement of all parties, and for good cause shown, the joint request to stay is GRANTED, and all further proceedings in these cases are STAYED pending disposition of the G.G. case pending in the United States Supreme Court. With the Carcaño Plaintiffs’ agreement, this stay includes further consideration of their due process claims, but the stay does not at this time include the United States’ pending motion. The parties are directed to inform the court immediately upon the resolution of the G.G. case or any other development that will affect the pendency of these cases.
