PRELIMINARY MATTERS

DATE

Nature of claims and any affirmative defenses:


Plaintiffs Utah Republican Party has brought an as
applied challenge to the constitutionality of Senate Bill
54 (SB 54), claiming it infringes inter alia, on the
Partys rights of association, free speech, and due
process. Plaintiff seeks an injunction and declaratory
judgment striking down SB 54 as unconstitutional.
Plaintiff further alleges that SB 54 violates the Partys
right to control and direct the use of its name, title,
emblems and endorsements in a manner that is likely to
cause confusion. Defendants deny these allegations.
The Court recently granted the Constitutional Party of
Utahs motion to intervene as a Plaintiff, seeking similar
relief as Plaintiff.
The Republican Party has filed an amended motion
for preliminary injunction. This motion is supported by
the Declaration of James Evans, the Utah Republican
Party Chairman. Pursuant to the Courts minute order
entered January 28, 2015 (doc. 29), Plaintiff will file a
supplemental opening brief as to the Constitutional
issues raised in the Preliminary Injunction by March 23,
2015. Defendants response to the amended motion for
preliminary injunction is due March 31, 2015. Reply is
due April 6, 2015. The Court has set a hearing to
receive evidence and hear argument on this motion for
April 10, 2015, at 9:00 a.m.
