To date, Guesman has not responded to any of this court's orders or notices, and all written communication has been returned. Because it appears that Guesman is not conducting his business in a professional manner and has apparently not kept this court apprised of his current mailing address, we refer this matter to the State Bar of Nevada for investigation pursuant to SCR 105. Bar counsel shall, within 90 days of this order, inform this court of the status or results of the investigation and any disciplinary proceedings in this matter. This court has determined that this appeal should be remanded for the appointment of new counsel. We remand this appeal to the district court for the limited purpose of securing counsel for appellant. If appellant is indigent, district court shall have 30 days to appoint counsel. Otherwise, the district court shall order that within 30 days, appellant must retain counsel and counsel must enter an appearance in the district court. District court clerk: 5 days to transmit district court order to this court and serve a copy of this order of remand on appellant's counsel. Counsel: 10 days to enter appearance. Appellate counsel shall then have 30 days to file a fast track statement. The State shall have 20 days to file a fast track response pursuant to NRAP 3C(f). 01-05262
