ORDER
16 On March 25,2014, Respondent filed a Motion to Dismiss Appeal on the
17 grounds that Appellant failed to obtain transcripts of the lower court's proceedings.

19 required and this appeal is not defective simply because of an unordered transcript.
Appellant then requests an extension of time to obtain the transcripts. On April 8,
21 2014, Respondent filed a Reply and submitted this matter for decision.
