DEMOCRAT PARTY OF MISSISSIPPI, ET AL.

Rule 16(b)(3)(B) of the Uniform Local Rules of the United States

Accordingly, it is therefore, ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that, pursuant to Local Rule 16(b)(3)(B), and in light of the fact that the Defendants have filed dispositive motions raising

jurisdictional defenses, all discovery not related to the jurisdictional issues pending the Court’s disposition of the dispositive motions in this matter is hereby stayed, including the making of any initial disclosures by any party. In accordance with Local Rule 16(b)(3)(E), upon receiving a ruling from the Court on the pending dispositive motions, Plaintiffs shall notify the United States Magistrate Judge of a decision on the jurisdictional defense motion and shall submit an Order Lifting the Stay. Within fifteen (15) days of the Order

Lifting the Stay, the parties shall confer in accordance with the Local Rules. SO ORDERED, this day of May, 2012.
