Before the
COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION

In the Matter of
CFTC Docket No. 97-12
CURTIS MCNAIR ARNOLD and
LONDON FINANCIAL, INC.
ORDER PURSUANT TO
DELEGATED AUTHORITY

William Sumner Scott ("Scott") submitted a motion that the Commission's Office of Proceedings received on August 24, 2000.1 The motion indicated that Scott was seeking relief pursuant to Rule 10(b)(2) of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure.2 Because the Commission's jurisdiction does not extend to motions seeking relief under the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, Scott's motion is denied and stricken from the record.

IT IS SO ORDERED.3

Edson G. Case
Deputy General Counsel
Commodity Futures Trading Commission

Dated: September 29, 2000


1 A Commission Administrative Law Judge ("ALJ") debarred Scott from acting as counsel for respondents in this proceeding n on September 10, 1997. Scott filed an interlocutory appeal and the Commission issued a decision that affirmed the ALJ's debarment order on October 17, 1997. Scott filed a motion for reconsideration and the Commission issued an order that denied the motion on February 27, 1998. On August 14, 2000, the Commission issued an order that imposed a cease and desist order, three-year trading prohibition, and $100,000 civil money penalty as a result of respondents' agreement to settle the Complaint's allegations. This order resolved all issues in this proceeding material to respondents.

2 Scott seeks to amend the record in this proceeding to include certain documents. The record does not indicate that Scott sought to have these documents included in the record prior to his debarment or at the time he sought Commission review of the ALJ's debarment order.

3 By the Commission pursuant to delegated authority. 17 C.F.R. 10.109(a)(6).
