Petitioners hereby respectfully wish to bring to the Court's attention: (1) Their Petition, dated June 17, 1996, in which they moved the Court for formal leave to appear in writing, instead of being physically present, and (2) Their previous Petition for Clarification of this Court's Order dated May 31, 1996. Petition for Reconsideration: Page 1 of 4 The Court has not ruled upon either of these two Motions and its failure to do so has worked a prejudice upon Petitioners. The issue of travel expenses currently weighs heavily upon Petitioners, which issue was amply explained in Their Petition for leave to appear in writing (June 17, 1996). Moreover, Petitioners have not received the information requested by Their FOIA request to the United States Department of Justice, a copy of which was provided to this Court in Their REQUEST FOR JUDICIAL NOTICE AND NOTICE OF SAME. This Court's Order, dated July 22, 1996, and finding all subsequent pleadings to be frivolous, was predicated upon a failure by Petitioners to "appear" as ordered on July 22, 1996, at 10:30 o'clock a.m. in the courtroom of the Garfield County Courthouse. Petitioners previously provided formal notice to this honorable Court of Their intent to appear, and respectfully requested leave to appear in writing, as opposed to being physically present, for the several reasons stated in Their Petition to that end. An answer constitutes an "appearance"; cf. Black's Law Dictionary, Revised Fourth Edition. Finally, Petitioners have previously requested clarification from this honorable Court of its Order dated May 31, 1996. Said clarification is a prerequisite to providing this Court with proof of its jurisdiction over the instant case. RELIEF REQUESTED Accordingly, Petitioners hereby respectfully request that this honorable Court reconsider its Order dated July 22, 1996, and rule on the two Petitions previously filed in the instant case, but not yet decided.
