If, within three months of this order, i.e., on or before 05/16/2012, a transcript has not been filed in the trial court and transmitted to the Appeals Court, the requesting party is to file a status report with the Appeals Court that explains the delay and offer an estimated completion date of the transcript. Furthermore, the requesting party shall file a status report with the Appeals Court within seven days of the filing of the transcript. *Notice/Attest.

Status report due that date to include an explanation by counsel of the necessity for the transcript of proceedings which occurred after the notice of appeal in this matter was filed. In addition, the 3 month stay initially granted has long expired and it does not appear from the current status report that the production of the remaining transcript volumes is imminent. Accordingly, unless the next status report indicates that the transcripts are complete or will be imminently completed, the assembly and entry of this appeal may be vacated, pending completion of the remaining transcripts by the trial court. *Notice/Attest.
