ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR LEAVE TO APPEAR AS AMICUS CURIAE

JAMES L. ROBART, District Judge.

Before the court is the motion of Movant Lamar C. Chapman, III, for leave to appear as amicus curiae. (Chapman Mot. (Dkt. # 185).) On February 14, 2017, the court issued an order setting forth the procedures applicable to the filing of amicus curiae briefs in this proceeding. (AC Order (Dkt. # 84).) Mr. Chapman's motion fails to adhere to the procedures set forth in that order. Namely, Mr. Chapman fails to "identify the pending motion to which [his] amicus curiae brief relates." (Id. at 2; see generally Chapman Mot.) The only motion pending at the time Mr. Chapman filed his motion was Defendants' motion for a stay. (See Def. Mot. (Dkt. # 175).) Mr. Chapman's filing does not reference Defendants' motion. (See generally Chapman Mot.) Further, the court has reviewed Mr. Chapman's filing and concludes that his proposed amicus curiae brief would not provide any helpful information beyond what the parties can provide. (See AC Order at 1.) Accordingly, the court DENIES Mr. Chapman's motion (Dkt. # 185).
