03/22/2019 297 ORDER by Judge Haywood S. Gilliam, Jr. DENYING Plaintiff-Intervenor State of Oregon’s 288 request for joinder in the States’ preliminary injunction motion, because it was filed after the Court entered its order granting the preliminary injunction motion. If Oregon intends to seek preliminary relief, it must file a noticed motion that complies with the requirements of Civil Local Rule 7-2. In the alternative, if Defendants and Intervenors do not oppose the extension of the Court’s January 13, 2019 preliminary injunction order to the State of Oregon, without prejudice to any objections or appellate issues they may have regarding any aspect of that order, the parties should file a stipulation to that effect.
