IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
ROBERT L. FRITSCHE; JOHN DOE; and
CRETE CARRIER CORPORATION
A Crete Carrier tractor-trailer driven by Fritsche allegedly clipped and
knocked Lawson’s Prius off Interstate 40 near Brinkley. Lawson sued. The
parties have fallen into a dispute about a $5,000 settlement clouded by about
$12,000 in liens that may or may not still be held by Oklahoma medical
providers. Lawson moves to enforce the settlement. Crete Carrier and
Fritsche respond that there was a settlement but dispute the terms. The Court
will have to hear testimony from the lawyers to resolve these issues. Counsel,
however, cannot continue as counsel and be witnesses about disputed facts.
ARK. RULES OF PROF’L CONDUCT R. 3.7. All parties should move to substitute
counsel by 25 May 2012. The Court will hold a one-hour hearing, including
testimony about the purported settlement, at 2:00 p.m. on 28 June 2012.
