The judge has said that about two weeks are set out in his schedule to work on an opinion (which shouldn’t necessarily be taken as a statement that his decision will be out in two weeks), and asked the parties to submit proposed “findings of fact” and “conclusions of law” for review. These are just the facts each party wants included in the opinion, as well as each legal conclusion.
The plaintiffs’ proposed findings of fact and conclusions of law can be read here.
The state has also filed a final brief in the case, although the judge had said he had enough briefing, and specifically asked for findings of fact and conclusions of law. The state’s final brief can be read here.
Thanks to Kathleen Perrin for these filings
