12/17/2003Order/ProceduralFiled Order. Attorney Charles Waterman filed a notice of appeal on behalf of appellant on September 16, 2003. The notice of appeal stated 'that Jeffery Wayne Burger, Defendant above-named, hereby appeals.' We note, however, that the caption on the notice of appeal identifies the defendant as 'Christopher Mack.' It therefore appears that the identification of Jeffery Wayne Burger as defendant was a typographical error. We admonish Mr. Waterman for failing to properly identify appellant in the text of the notice of appeal. On November 4, 2003, attorney Marvin L. Longabaugh also filed a notice of appeal on behalf of appellant. On November 24, 2003, Mr. Longabaugh filed appellant's docketing statement. Based on the most recent filings in this appeal, it appears that Mr. Longabaugh has taken over representation of appellant for this appeal. We note, however, that Mr. Waterman has not requested leave to withdraw as counsel of record for appellant in this appeal. Accordingly, if Mr. Waterman wishes to withdraw as counsel of record for appellant in this appeal, he shall, within 20 days from the date of this order, file a motion to withdraw. To date, appellant has failed to file either a transcript request form or a certificate indicating that no transcripts are requested Appellant shall have 10 days from the date of this order to comply with NRAP 9(a). 03-20988

01/13/2004Order/ProceduralFiled Order Granting Motion. filed December 26, 2003. Attorney Charles Waterman has moved for leave to withdraw as counsel of record for appellant. Mr. Waterman's co-counsel, Mr. Marvin L. Longabaugh, has been served with a copy of the motion and has not opposed it. Cause appearing, we grant the motion. See SCR 166(2)(f). The clerk shall remove Mr. Waterman as counsel of record for appellant. 04-00756
04/21/2004Order/ProceduralFiled Order. To date, appellant has failed to file the opening brief and appendix. Appellant shall, within 15 days from the date of this order, file and serve the opening brief and appendix. Failure to comply timely with this order may result in the imposition of sanctions against counsel for appellant. On December 24, 2003, appellant filed a 'Certificate of Non-Request for Transcripts.' On December 29, 2003, court recorder Shirlee Prawalsky filed transcripts with this court for proceedings conducted on July 23, 2003, July 24, 2003, and July 25, 2003. In the interest of judicial economy, we conclude that if appellant will be citing to these transcripts he does not need to include them in the appendix to his opening brief. 04-07345

05/19/2004Order/ProceduralFiled Order/Consolidation. On April 21, 2004, we directed appellant to file the opening brief and appendix in Docket No. 42073 within 15 days. On April 30, 2004, appellant's counsel, Mr. Marvin L. Longabaugh, moved to consolidate these appeals. In support of the motion, Mr. Longabaugh notes that the appeals 'involve common questions of law and fact as they arose allegedly out of the same incident.' Mr. Longabaugh further requests that this court accept the opening brief filed on March 2, 2004, in Docket No. 42149 as the opening brief in Docket No. 42073. Cause appearing, we grant the motion and consolidate the above-entitled appeals all appellate purposes. The briefs filed in Docket No. 42149 will be accepted as the briefs for Docket No. 42073. We vacate that portion of our April 21, 2004, order entered in Docket No. 42073 directing appellant to file an opening brief and appendix. Nos. 42073/42149 04-09262
