Subject: RE: status of appeal

The appeal case should be starting within the next couple of weeks.  There are no deadlines pending right now.

The court case should be a condensed version of the OSE case�we will file a motion to dismiss; they will respond, we will reply.  I hope we can wrap it up in less than a year.
