August 16, 2012 30 Opinion or Order of the Court OPINION and ORDER re: 29 MOTION to Intervene filed by Jonathan Lee Riches. Accordingly, the Court DENIES Movant's motion. (Signed by Judge Kimba M. Wood on 8/13/2012) (lmb)
August 16, 2012 31 Opinion or Order of the Court OPINION AND ORDER re: 18 FIRST MOTION to Dismiss Notice of Motion. filed by Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., 15 FIRST MOTION to Dismiss (limited) 4th and 5th Causes of Action. filed by Eric T. Schneiderman. Plaintiffs have asked the Court to i nvalidate the ban because, they allege, MMAs safetyconcerns have been discredited and the sport itself has been reformed. Indeed, 45 of 48 states with athletic commissions now allow it. But if the evolution of MMA and the understanding of its risks h ave rendered the 1997 law unnecessary or unwise, Plaintiffs proper recourse is with the legislature because the Constitution presumes that, absent some reason to infer antipathy, even improvident decisions will eventually be rectified by the democrat ic process and that judicial intervention is generally unwarranted no matter how unwisely [a court] may think that a political branch has acted." Beach Commc'ns, 508 U.S. at 314 (quoting Vance, 440 U.S. at 97). The Court GRANTS Defendants' motion to dismiss Counts IV and V. The Court directs the parties to submit by August 31, 2012 a joint proposed schedule for resolving the remainder of this case. (Signed by Judge Kimba M. Wood on 8/13/2012) (djc)

Consistent with this opinion, Plaintiffs' as-applied vagueness challenge is not dismissed; the remainder of Plaintiffs' claims are dismissed. (Signed by Judge Kimba M. Wood on 9/30/2013) (tn)
