Before POOLE and THOMPSON, Circuit Judges.

1

Appellants' motion to dismiss this appeal is granted. The appeal has become moot by the State of California's suspension of the corporate appellee, J.L.M. Construction Co., Inc., by its inability and unwillingness to participate further in the appellate process, and by the appellant's desire to abandon the appeal as reflected by its motion for voluntary dismissal.

Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this appeal is dismissed. The judgment of the district court from which the appeal was taken is vacated.
