The opposition has now been withdrawn and I am therefore enclosing a certified copy and one additional copy of today's order lifting the stay of the conditional transfer order and transferring the action to your district pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1407. The order is directed to you for filing. The Panel has ordered that its Rule 1.6(a), pertaining to transfer of files, be suspended for purposes of this litigation. Accordingly, the transferee district clerk shall request, and the transferor district clerk shall forward, only those files deemed necessary by the transferee district court.
