BACKGROUND:

Plaintiffs have submitted to the clerk of Court a request that the Notice of Class

Action approved by the court be signed by the Clerk of Court and returned to class

counsel for publication to potential class members consistent with the courtís Order # 2 of

June 19, 1996 certifying the class.


Order # 2 filed on June 19, 1996 provides that:


The ninety-day period for class notification will soon expire. In view of the pending

motions for reconsideration of the courtís order and memorandum granting class

certification, we will defer notification of the class until the pending motions for

decertification are resolved.

NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED THAT:


1. Order # 2 filed June 19, 1996 is vacated to the extent that it requires

publication of notice to the class within 90 days from the date of that order.

2. Class counselís obligation to publish notice to the class is deferred and class

counsel is directed to make no effort in that regard until further order of court.
