IN RE THE MARRIAGE OF ELLEN MARIE KRAGT, Petitioner and Appellee, and DONALD FRANK KRAGT, Respondent and Appellant.
The record was filed for purposes of this appeal on September 24, 2013. On October 11, the Court granted counsel for Appellant Donald Frank Kragt an extension of time until December 13 in which to file the opening brief on appeal. Then, on November 4, counsel for Appellant filed a document entitled "Notice of suggestion of death of party and motion for stay of proceedings, " in which counsel suggested that his client had died, and requested an indefinite stay of these proceedings pending appointment of a personal representative for Appellant's estate.
Nothing further has been filed, and the opening brief is now overdue.
IT IS ORDERED that counsel for Appellant Kragt shall prepare, file, and serve a report on the status of this appeal within 30 days of the date of this Order.
The Clerk is directed to provide copies of this order to all counsel of record.
