DEFENDANTS’ MOTION TO DISMISS

Defendants, by their undersigned attorneys, hereby move, pursuant to Rules

12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6), Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, to dismiss this action. The

grounds for this motion are that the Court lacks jurisdiction over the subject matter

of plaintiffs’ claims and that the amended complaint fails to state a claim upon

which relief can be granted.

In support of this motion, the Court is respectfully referred to the

Memorandum of Points and Authorities filed herewith.

Respectfully submitted,

TONY WEST
Assistant Attorney General
