JOINT MOTION TO STAY PLAINTIFF’S MOTION


FOR A PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION AND DEFENDANT’S OBLIGATION
TO RESPOND TO THE FIRST AMENDED COMPLAINT
AND SUPPORTING MEMORANDUM

Plaintiff Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and defendant U.S.

Department of Homeland Security respectfully move the Court to stay further consideration of

plaintiff’s pending motion for a preliminary injunction, including further briefing and the oral

argument scheduled for August 19, 2009, as well as defendant’s obligation to respond to the first

amended complaint. The parties seek this stay in light of the good faith efforts the White House

and the plaintiff have made to resolve the issues in this case. A stay of the pending motion and

defendant’s obligation to respond to the amended complaint will allow the parties to continue

this process.

The parties respectfully suggest that they file a joint status report within 30 days updating

the Court on the status of their efforts.

August 7, 2009 Respectfully submitted,

____/s/_________________
