RICHARD H. BENSON, Associate Justice:
The appellants request a rehearing of this appeal pursuant to FSM Civil Rules 60(b)(5) and (6). The motion was filed February 1, 1993.
On June 12, 1992 our memorandum of decision in this case was entered. Damarlane v. Pohnpei Transp. Auth., 5 FSM Intrm. 322 (App. 1992). It dismissed the appeal, which was from a
decision in the trial division of the Pohnpei State Supreme Court declaring that certain dredged coral was the property of Pohnpei Transportation Authority.
The appellants cite Rule 60(b)(5) and (6) for authority but fail to describe how it applies. They say "it is no longer equitable that the judgment should have prospective application, or any other reason justifying relief from the operation of the judgment." Both our order dismissing the appeal and the judgment in the state court by their terms have no prospective application. We cannot conclude that the rule cited justifies the relief the appellants seek. The appellants have not given any authority that Rule 60 applies to appellate matters, and we see no reason to decide the issue.
The motion is denied.
