EXCERPT:

On January 3, 2017, the Court Ordered counsel to appear on this date for a Status Conference since the Court of Appeals had issued the Mandate on a Motion on which it had recently ruled. As counsel know, there are two more Appeals pending before the Court of Appeals, in which oral arguments have been scheduled for February 14, 2017. After reading the briefs, the Court concluded that the holding of a Status Conference would not be worthwhile and should await the Court of Appeals’ ruling in the Appeals now before it.

The Court hopes that the Parties were not inconvenienced by this change.
