- Court noted, Mr. Chen was supposed to file a report. Mr. Santos indicated he had the report and was prepared to file it; however, he needed to add additional information regarding Mr. Chen being a United States resident and further issues involving an audit.

Mr. Santos informed the Court Mr. Chen had a trip lined up to go back to China next week. Court informed Mr. Santos to notify Mr. Chen that, if Mr. Chen wanted to continue to complete this case he had to obey court orders; further, Mr. Chen didn't show up last court date or today.
