Once an attorney is located, the attorney shall file a notice of appearance in this court within 60 days from the date of this order. Supplemental briefing and oral argument will be scheduled thereafter.

11/05/2015Order/ProceduralFiled Order. Counsel for respondent seeks clarification based on her assertion that appellant's opening brief cites to volume I and II of an appendix but no such volumes have been served on respondent or appear to have been filed in this court. The citations to volumes I-IV of the appendix appear to correlate to volumes I-IV of the record on appeal filed in this court on February 19, 2015. The citation to volume I-II of the supplemental appendix appear to correlate to the supplemental appendix filed in this court on September 10, 2015. Both the record on appeal and the supplemental appendix are available to counsel via this court's docket. Given the confusion with regard to the citations, the motion for an extension of time is granted. Answering Brief due: 11 days.15-33813
