La Clínica de la Raza, et al. v. Trump, et al.

Challenge to Trump Administration’s Public Charge Rule


La Clínica de la Raza, et al. v. Trump, et al.


Briefs, Memos, and Orders Filed with/Issued by the United States District Court for the Northern District of California (from latest to earliest):

  • Plaintiffs’ Notice of Motion and Motion for a Preliminary Injunction; Memorandum of Points and Authorities (filed 9/4/19, PDF). “Because the Regulation violates the Administrative Procedure Act and will cause irreparable harm, and the equities and public interest weigh in Plaintiffs’ favor, Plaintiffs seek a nationwide preliminary injunction against enforcement the Regulation and an order postponing the effective date of the Regulation pending judicial review pursuant to 5 U.S.C. § 705.”
  • Complaint for Injunctive and Declaratory Relief (filed 8/16/19, PDF). “Defendants’ ’public charge’ regulation … violates the Administrative Procedure Act … and the equal protection guarantee of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Regulation is squarely at odds with the language of the statute, its century-long interpretation, and Congress’s purpose in enacting the statute. It is arbitrary and capricious and motivated by animus toward non-white immigrants.”
