FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR AN EXPEDITED STATUS CONFERENCE
On June 28, 2001, the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, sitting en banc, issued its ruling in this case, affirming in part, reversing in part, and remanding in part the District Court's liability judgment, and reversing and remanding in its entirety the District Court's remedial order for further consideration in light of the Appellate Court's opinion. On August 24, 2001, the Court of Appeals issued its mandate, and the matter was assigned to this court for further proceedings.
Rule 16(a) provides that a court may, in its discretion, direct attorneys for the parties to
appear before it for a conference in order to expedite matters. Because of the strong public
interest in a prompt and orderly resolution of the remaining issues in this case, Plaintiffs
respectfully request that the Court schedule an initial status conference at its earliest convenience
to address procedures and a schedule for future proceedings. Counsel for plaintiffs are available
for a status conference any time during the next 10 days except September 5 and September 7.
