The preliminary injunction issued on August 24, 2022, by the United States District Court for the District of Idaho, case No. 1:22-cv-00329, is stayed. The application is also treated as a petition for a writ of certiorari before judgment, and the petition is granted (case No. 23-726) on the question presented in Idaho's application (23A470). The cases (23-726 and 23-727) are consolidated and a total of 1 hour is allotted for oral argument. The Clerk is directed to establish a briefing schedule that will allow the case to be argued in the April 2024 argument session. The stay shall terminate upon the sending down of the judgment of this Court. VIDED.
Jan 05 2024Because the Court has consolidated these cases for briefing and oral argument, future filings and activity in the cases will now be reflected on the docket of No. 23-726. Subsequent filings in these cases must therefore be submitted through the electronic filing system in No. 23-726. Each document submitted in connection with one or more of these cases must include on its cover the case number and caption for each case in which the filing is intended to be submitted. Where a filing is submitted in fewer than all of the cases, the docket entry will reflect the case number(s) in which the filing is submitted; a document filed in all of the consolidated cases will be noted as “VIDED.”
