101 Ute Motion to Reassign Case

102 DCt Chief Judge Order re 101


Discussion and argument heard on the motions. After taking a recess, and for the reasons stated on the record, the court made the following rulings on the record: 
The court DENIES 70 Mr. Becker’s Motion for Preliminary Injunction; 
DENIES 71 Motion for Leave to File Sealed Document; 
DENIES 75 The Tribe’s Motion for TRO, Motion for Preliminary Injunction, and Motion for Permanent Injunction; and 
GRANTS 93 Tribe’s Motion for Leave to File Sur-Reply. 

The court also stays the case and all remaining pending motions (Dkt. Nos. 72, 73 and 74). Should the tribal court decline jurisdiction, the court will then address the remaining motions. The parties are granted leave to file a motion to lift the stay if circumstances should change before resolution of both the tribal court and state court actions.
