BESHEAR, in his official capacity as Governor of Kentucky

1

For clarity, the Governor notes that the Court’s Final Order was entered on February 27, 2014 (Doc. No. 55), making final and appealable the Court’s prior Memorandum Opinion and Order (Doc. Nos. 47 and 48). On the same day, the Court allowed the filing of an Intervening Complaint by the Intervening Plaintiffs identified in the caption above. (Doc. No. 53, Order, and Doc. No. 54, Intervening Complaint). On the next day, the Court entered an order directing the Clerk to modify the caption of the case to remove the original Plaintiffs from the caption so that the matter could proceed in the district court identifying the Intervening Plaintiffs as the prosecuting parties on their Intervening Complaint. (Doc. No. 57). The caption of that Order identified the Governor and co-defendant as “Intervening Defendants.” For consistency with the Court’s order regarding the current caption of the case, the Governor has identified the Defendants in this Notice of Appeal as “Defendants/Intervening Defendants.”
