UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS RICHARD SHEPPARD ARNOLD UNITED STATES COURTHOUSE 500 W. CAPITOL, ROOM D444 LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS 72201-3325 (501) 604-5140 Facsimile (501) 604-5149 July 16, 2009 Mr. Morgan E. Welch Welch and Kitchens, LLC One Riverfront Place, Suite 413 North Little Rock, AR 72114 Mr. John W. Walker John W. Walker, P.A. 1723 Broadway Little Rock, AR 72206-1220 Mr. Troy A. Price Wright, Lindsey, & Jennings LLP 200 West Capitol Avenue, Suite 2300 Little Rock, AR 72201 Re: Dear Counsel: After quickly reviewing your papers I believe an evidentiary hearing is necessary. By 5 p.m., next Monday, July 20, 2009, submit your expected witnesses and the length of time you think it will take for direct examination of each witness. After we received these submissions, my courtroom deputy will set a date and time for the hearing. I want to resolve this matter as soon as reasonably possible. If after seeing the other sides witness list, you decide you may need a rebuttal witness, please submit the name of each possible rebuttal witness by 4 p.m., Tuesday, July 21, 2009. As a word to the wise, I think there are very few rebuttal witnesses -- most of those I have seen over nearly 45 years at the bar have been direct witnesses held in reserve for a flank attack. Needless to say this type of socalled rebuttal witness will not be permitted. Have a great weekend -- starting at any time of your choosing, commencing immediately. Cordially, /s/ Wm. R. Wilson, Jr. Original to the Clerk of Court cc: Other Counsel of Record Nelson v. Wal-Mart, 2:04-CV-00171-WRW Notice of Attorney Lien
