IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT

FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA


CARA PALLADINO, et al. : CIVIL ACTION
:
v. :
:
THOMAS W. CORBETT, et al. : NO. 13-5641

ORDER
AND NOW, this 22nd day of May, 2014, whereas the court
in Whitewood v. Wolf, No. 13-1861, 2014 WL 2058105 (M.D. Pa. May
20, 2014), held that 23 Pa. Cons. Stat. § 1704 is
unconstitutional under both the Due Process and Equal Protection
Clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment and issued a permanent
injunction against the defendants in that case from enforcing
the statute; and whereas Governor Corbett issued a statement on
May 21, 2014, that the Whitewood decision would not be appealed;
and whereas “a request for a declaratory judgment that a
statutory provision is invalid is moot if the provision has been
substantially amended or repealed,” Nextel Partners Inc. v.
Kingston Twp., 286 F.3d 687, 693 (3d Cir. 2002), IT IS HEREBY
ORDERED that, on or before May 29, 2014, the plaintiffs shall
show cause why their case should not be dismissed as moot.
