04/17/2002Order/ProceduralFiled Order. On March 11, 2002, this court entered an order granting the motion of attorney Jeffrey R. Sylvester to withdraw as counsel of record for appellants in these consolidated appeals. That order directed appellant to retain new counsel and to cause new counsel to file a notice of appearance, and suspended the briefing schedule in these appeals. In light of that order we deny, as moot, respondent's motion to dismiss these appeals due to appellant's failure to file and serve an opening brief and appendix. On March 29, 2002, appellants responded to our order, informing this court that they would not be retaining counsel to represent them in these appeals. Accordingly, these appeals shall proceed as proper person appeals. All filing deadlines are suspended pending further order of this court. Nos. 38133/38254. (02-06824)
