February 25, 2013 9124711522 Opinion or Order of the Court FILED OPINION (ALEX KOZINSKI, A. WALLACE TASHIMA and MILAN D. SMITH, JR.) REVERSED. Judge: AK Authoring, Judge: MDS Concurring & dissenting. The district court s orders denying Cetacean s preliminary injunction and dismissing its piracy claims are REVERSED. The preliminary injunction we issued on December 17, 2012, Inst. of Cetacean Research v. Sea Shepherd Conservation Soc y, 702 F.3d 573 (9th Cir. 2012), will remain in effect until further order of this court. The district judge s numerous, serious and obvious errors identified in our opinion raise doubts as to whether he will be perceived as impartial in presiding over this high-profile case. The appearance of justice would be served if the case were transferred to another district judge, drawn at random, and we so order in accordance with the standing orders of the Western District of Washington. The panel retains jurisdiction over any further appeals or writs involving this case. FILED AND ENTERED JUDGMENT. [8526026]
