ORDER

The Court is in receipt of the Plaintiffs' Motion pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 753(f) in the above-entitled case to direct the Court Reporter to provide a transcript of various proceedings in this Court for use on appeal. The Court cannot certify that the appeal is not frivolous (but presents a substantial question). The Court has examined with utmost care all of the Plaintiffs' arguments in this case and, while it respects the Plaintiffs' right of access to the Courts, the undersigned cannot in good conscience, require the taxpayers to pay for the requested transcripts.

Accordingly, it is, by the Court, this 26th day of September, 1995,
ORDEREDthat the Plaintiffs' Motion shall be, and hereby is, DENIED on the ground that the appeal is frivolous and does not present a substantial question
