ORDER STAYING AND PERMITTING SUPPLEMENTAL BRIEFING
MATTHEW F. LEITMAN, UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE.
Order Hon. Matthew F. Leitman The United States Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral argument in Sheehan v. City and County of San Francisco, 743 F.3d 1211 (9th Cir. 2014), cert, granted, 83 U.S.L.W. 3326 (U.S. Nov. 25, 2014) (No. 13-1412), on March 23, 2015. In deciding Sheehan, the Supreme Court may address certain legal issues relevant to the motion for summary judgment currently pending before this Court. (See ECF #25.) Accordingly, the Court believes that it is appropriate to (1) stay this action pending the Supreme Court's decision in Sheehan and (2) allow the parties to file supplemental briefs addressing Sheehan after the Supreme Court issues its opinion.
For the reasons stated above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this action is STAYED until further order of this Court. The Court will enter an order lifting the stay after the Supreme Court issues its opinion in Sheehan. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that each party may file a supplemental brief (maximum of 10 pages) addressing Sheehan not more than 21 days after the Supreme Court issues its opinion. The parties shall be responsible for monitoring the Supreme Court’s docket and submitting their supplemental briefs, if any, in a timely fashion.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
