DISTRICT COURT TEXT ORDER regarding Appeal. CIVIL ACTION CASE NO.: 15-cv-00665-RJA. RULING: Dismissed. TEXT ORDER: On April 20, 2015, when the United States Supreme Court denied the petition for rehearing of its denial of a petition for a writ of certiorari to the Oklahoma Supreme Court for the June 10, 2014 judgment in favor of Oklahoma, see Native Wholesale Supply v. Oklahoma, ex rel. Pruitt, 135 S.Ct. 1888 (2015), the dispute giving rise to the bankruptcy court’s May 16, 2015 Order became moot. See , . Accordingly, this appeal of the May 16, 2015 Order is also moot, and is hereby DISMISSED. Because the Court has considered filings of the parties designated with the docket number for this appeal that were docketed only in the docket of the closely-related bankruptcy appeal pending at 15-CV-665, items 6-18 in that docket are hereby incorporated by reference as if fully docketed in this docket. The Court does not address the motion for sanctions filed by Oklahoma at this time, however. Oral argument prior to dismissal was adjourned, and not held, because the Court found it unnecessary pursuant to Fed. R. Bank P. 8019. The Clerk shall terminate the appeal. SO ORDERED. Issued by Hon. Richard J. Arcara on November 19, 2015. (WJG) -CLERK TO FOLLOW UP- Signed on 11/23/2015 . (Pinto, M.)
