ORDER

On July 2, 2010, this Court filed an Order to Show Cause directing Appellants’

counsel to show cause in writing why he should not be subject to an Order pursuant to

F.R.A.P. 38 for pursuing a frivolous appeal. In response, Mario Apuzzo filed a 95-page

statement that contains, inter alia, numerous statements directed to the merits of this

Court’s opinion, which the Court finds unpersuasive. His request that the Court

reconsider its opinion is denied, as the appropriate procedure for that issue is through a

Petition for Rehearing. However, based on Mr. Apuzzo’s explanation of his efforts to

research the applicable law on standing, we hereby discharge the Order to Show Cause.

By the Court,
