CAPITOL, ROOM D444 LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS 72201-3325 (501) 604-5140 Facsimile (501) 604-5149 May 11, 2009 Mr. Robert L. Henry , III Barber, McCaskill, Jones & Hale, P.A. 400 West Capitol Avenue, Suite 2700 Little Rock, AR 72201-3414 Mr. Kirkman T. Dougherty Hardin, Jesson & Terry - Fort Smith Post Office Box 10127 Fort Smith, AR 72903-0127 Re: Dear Counsel: In view of the fact that the evidence Mr. Burress's possible fault has been ruled out, I am puzzled by your estimate that it would take six days to try this case. Of course, I do not know the details of the case as you do, but my curiosity is intensely aroused. By 5 p.m., on Monday, May 18, 2009, please list the name of each of the witnesses you plan on calling in direct and the amount of time you think it will take to conduct direct examination for each witness. By 5 p.m., Thursday, May 21, 2009, please list the amount of time you anticipate using in crossexamination of each of the other party's witnesses. I may set presumptive time limits -- but I may not. Cordially, /s/ Wm. R. Wilson, Jr. Original to the Clerk of the Court cc: Other Counsel of Record Burress v. Union Pacific Railroad, et al, 1:01-CV-00072-WRW Page 1 of 1
