Although we greatly regret any disruption caused to the court and the other litigants, the government hereby moves for a stay of all proceedings in this case until Department of Justice attorneys are permitted to resume their usual civil litigation functions. [We will notify judges] as soon as Congress has appropriated funds for the department. The government requests that, at that point, all current deadlines for the parties be extended commensurate with the duration of the lapse in appropriations. The department does not know when funding will be restored by Congress.
— Language used by the Justice Department in motions filed nationwide, asking federal judges to pause proceedings in all of their cases due to the government shutdown.
