An appropriate order will be entered.
1. It is declared that the Defendants violated Farr's right to due process pursuant to the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution and therefore the Clerk of Court shall enter judgment for Farr on this issue.
2. If within 10 days any counsel files a written request therefor, this case will be placed at the end of the current September, 1977 list as Case # 17, following MacMurray v.

If no such written request is filed, the Court will dispose of the matter on briefs which will then be due within 15 days from the date of this Order.
3. Farr, if she intends to ask for attorney's fees, shall file an appropriate motion, a statement of the services rendered in compliance with this Court's Order # 2 of October 26, 1976 and a supporting brief within 30 days of the date of this Order and the preceding Opinion.
