On August 23, 2006, the Court held a hearing at which all necessary parties appeared.*fn1
At that hearing, the parties presented evidence and made arguments to the Court regarding their respective positions on the matters before the Court. There was no court reporter present and the matter was recorded using the Court's recording system, FTR Gold. It has now come to the Court's attention that the recording of that day is unintelligible. The Court could put out an order without a record to memorialize the evidence and argument but it declines to do so.
THEREFORE, it is the order of the Court that the hearing previously held will be resumed on March 19, 2007 at 9:00 a.m. at the U.S. Courthouse, 750 Missouri Ave., East St. Louis, IL. The Court will order a court reporter to transcribe the hearing. The parties are ORDERED to be present.
