IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
RM DEAN FARMS, a General Partnership
No. 2:11CV00105 JLH
HELENA CHEMICAL COMPANY
KURT NELSON CATLETT and
On July 30, 2012, the Court conducted a hearing on the pending discovery motions. After
hearing arguments from counsel, the Court ruled that the discovery cut-off should be extended for
a period of two additional weeks beyond the current discovery deadline. Helena Chemical Company
must produce its expert witness, Dr. Timothy Walker, for a deposition at a time and place to be
agreed upon by counsel. Likewise, the two Helena Chemical Company employees who have been
identified in the pending notice of deposition also must be produced for depositions at a time and
place to be mutually agreed upon by counsel. The Court reserves ruling on whether Dr. Don Harlan
must be deposed until the issues raised in Helena Chemical Company’s motion for protective order
(Document #88) are fully briefed. If the depositions ordered herein produce new information such
that in fairness other discovery should be conducted, that discovery may be permitted. The motion
to compel the deposition of Dr. Timothy Walker is therefore GRANTED. Document #86.
For the reasons stated on the record at the conclusion of the hearing, RM Dean Farms’ motion
to quash the subpoena issued to Arkansas County Bank is DENIED. Document #73.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 31st day of July, 2012.
