We previously noted that the challenge to the SEC’s conflict minerals rules was transferred from the Court of Appeals to the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.  A scheduling order has been entered in the case which provides that the parties’ cross-motions for summary judgment will be decided on the basis of briefs transferred from the Court of Appeals.  The Court also granted the parties’ request to expedite the cross motion for summary judgment.

We also noted that the Court of Appeals dismissed the challenge to the SEC’s resource extraction rules for lack of jurisdiction and that the case would proceed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.  The District Court has likewise entered a scheduling order which provides that the plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment will be decided on the briefs submitted by the parties to the Court of Appeals.
