IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
DONNIE W. STRINGFELLOW, II and
SANDRA A. STRINGFELLOW
FEDERAL NATIONAL MORTGAGE ASSN.
("FANNIE MAE") and JPMORGAN
CHASE BANK, N.A.
Defendants' motion to dismiss, NQ 32, and related papers move beyond
the complaint with facts and non-public documents that may be disputed.
The Court notes the joint motion for more time to respond, to stay discovery,
and to issue a new scheduling Order. It, NQ 35, is denied. The better course
is to recognize Defendants' motion for what it is-one for summary
judgment- and give Plaintiffs adequate time to respond. The motion is
R. CN. P. 56(£). The Court directs Defendants to file a
statement of undisputed material facts conforming to Local Rule 56.1 and this
Court's scheduling Order, NQ 31 at 3-4. Statement due by 6 November 2013.
Plaintiffs' responding papers due by 27 November 2013. The Court calls
Plaintiffs' attention to the requirements for their responding statement of
material facts. NQ 31 at 3-4. Any reply due by 6 December 2013. Given the
delays to date in this case, these deadlines will not be extended. If the parties
know they need to take a deposition or two, then they should schedule them
now to comply with the briefing schedule.
