October 2, 2020 Opinion or Order Filing 952 ORDER from Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals filed re: Notice of Appeal to 9th Circuit Court of Appeals #915 filed by Knight Law Plaintiffs. CCA # 20-55883. The district court's records reflect that appellants timely filed a motion listed in Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 4(a)(4), which is still pending.

Within 14 days after the district court's decision, appellants must notify this court in writing of the decision and state whether they wish to move forward with this appeal. To challenge the decision on the post-judgment motion, appellant must file an amended notice of appeal within the time set by Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 4. Appellants' motion to stay appellate proceedings is denied as unnecessary. (gk)
