There is an update in the pending case challenging the SORNA regulations. The federal government has withdrawn its appeal of the Preliminary Injunction, however, the federal government is continuing to pursue a motion to dismiss the case.
Although both the federal government and the plaintiffs have waived oral argument regarding that motion, the judge has scheduled a hearing on that motion during which oral argument may be required for June 5 at 9 a.m. Plaintiffs are required to file their brief opposing the motion to dismiss no later than April 27. Defendants are required to file their reply brief no later than May 18.
During the time the motion to dismiss is pending, the Preliminary Injunction will continue to be enforced. That injunction, which is limited to registrants who currently reside in California, prohibits the federal government from enforcing the SORNA regulations in that state.
