  • USCA JUDGMENT as to 3594 Notice of Appeal. This cause came on to be heard on appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Puerto Rico and was argued by counsel. Upon consideration whereof, it is now here ordered, adjudged and decreed as follows: The district court's ruling that Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act's protocol for the appointment of Financial Oversight and Management Board Members is constitutional is reversed. The matter is remanded to the district court with instructions to enter a declaratory judgment to the effect that Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act's protocol for the appointment of Financial Oversight and Management Board Members is unconstitutional and must be severed. The district court's denial of appellants' motions to dismiss the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act's Title III proceedings is affirmed. Mandate in these appeals shall not issue for 90 days, so as to allow the President and the United States Senate to validate the currently defective appointments or reconstitute the Financial Oversight and Management Board in accordance with the Appointments Clause, U.S. Const. art. II, § 2, cl. 2. During the 90-day stay period, the Board may continue to operate as until now.
