The hearing on the motion for a temporary restraining order
that was set by Judge Seeborg of the Northern District of California on October 8, 2013 was vacated by Judge Seeborg that same day. The following day Judge Wilken issued an order
finding that the pending APA lawsuit against the Department of Justice related to a prior APA lawsuit by the Habeas Corpus Resource Center against the Department of Justice and assigned the pending case to herself. The Department of Justice has filed a request to stay the litigation
in light of the absence of a federal budget. The plaintiffs have filed an opposition
to this request. Addition information about these legal proceedings is available on the secure portion of HAT's website.
