The opinion of the court was delivered by: Paul L. Friedman United States District Judge
On May 3, 2002, the Arbitrator in this case, Michael K. Lewis, submitted his Second Report on the Late-claim Petition Process ("Arbitrator's Second Report"). That report describes in detail the Arbitrator's ongoing review of late-claim petitions and reconsideration of previously denied late-claim petitions. Because the Court finds that the Arbitrator's Second Report contains important information on the Arbitrator's progress in deciding and reconsidering late-claim petitions, it is hereby
ORDERED that the Arbitrator's second report on the late-claim petition process  is APPROVED by the Court; and it is
FURTHER ORDERED that the report shall be made available to all interested parties by means of immediate posting on the District Court's website at http://www.dcd.uscourts.gov/district-court-recent.html.
