None the less, it would be appropriate (for the record) to rule the motion out of order.

Are you going to cancel the motion? I did vote Approve with the assumption that EC can suspend the rule.
Given that response, I believe that the right course of action at this point is for you to cancel the motion on the grounds that it is out of order.

Dear EC Members,
I just received the following communication from IEEE Staff regarding an interpretation of whether or not a Sponsor can suspend their P&P, which you need to consider when casting your vote on the motion to suspend that we have in process. Please keep in mind it is an interpretation--not until SASB considers an action on a Sponsor motion to suspend their P&P, would a formal decision on the validity of such an action be made.

Subject: Suspension of P&Ps
I'd appreciate it if you could please send this to the EC reflector.
I was notified of the questions by EC members about whether the Sponsor P&Ps could be suspended by the EC. I conferred with outside counsel, Claire Topp, whose advice mirrored my own opinion. We believe that the EC cannot suspend the Sponsor P&Ps because ultimate authority for the procedures lie not with the EC, but with AudCom and the SASB. Any action by the EC would have to be accepted by AudCom and/or approved by the SASB.
Realistically, I don't believe AudCom or the SASB would allow Sponsors to suspend their P&Ps because of the risks associated with this action. However, the EC can present their request to AudCom if they would like it to be considered.
