Federal Government Shutdown Affects the District Court for the Southern District of Indiana

This week, the shutdown of the federal government has affected civil cases in the Southern District of Indiana. The Court has issued a rare stay of all pending litigation where the United States, its agencies, officers, or employees are parties. The Court believes that the shutdown “has resulted in the excepted employees in the United States Attorney’s Office to be unable to fully represent the interests of the United States in all of civil litigation pending before this Court.”

This Order does not affect habeus corpus proceedings at the Court.
