Case 1 :05-cv-01458-UNA-AK Document 20 Filed 04/13/2006 Page 1 of 2 



IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA 



AHMED DOE, etal, 



Petitioners, 



GEORGE W. BUSH, 

President of the United States, 
et ah, 



Respondents. 



Civil Action No. 05-CV-1458 (ESH) 



RESPONDENTS' NOTICE REGARDING PETITIONERS' 
MOTION FOR ENTRY OF PROTECTIVE ORDER 

Respondents hereby submit the following notice regarding petitioners' motion for entry 
of the protective order in the above-captioned case (dkt. no. 18). 

On March 31, 2006, this Court stayed "all action" in the above-captioned case and denied 
all pending motions without prejudice pending resolution by appellate courts of "serious 
questions concerning whether this Court retains jurisdiction to hear the above-captioned case[]" 
after the Detainee Treatment Act of 2005, Pub. L. No. 109-148, tit. X, 119 Stat. 2680, became 
law. See March 31, 2006 Order (dkt. no. 19). Because the Court has stayed "all action" in this 
case, absent further direction from the Court, respondents will not submit a substantive response 
to petitioners' request for relief at this time. Respondents reserve their right to submit a 
memorandum in opposition to petitioners' motion for entry of the protective order containing a 
substantive response opposing petitioners' request for relief in the future if so directed by the 
Court.
