On March 23, 2016, a panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion vacating the lower court's ruling that barred implementation of Department of Justice's regulations governing certification procedures for States seeking the benefits of Chapter 154 of Title 28 of the United States Code.  The panel held that the plaintiffs lacked standing and that the challenge to the regulations was not ripe as no certification had occurred.
