IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
LOREN W. MAY, SR.,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, et al.
This matter is before the Court on the Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss (Doc. No. 17), to
which Plaintiff has filed a Response (Doc. No. 20).
In their Motion, Defendants submit for the Court’s review several documents outside of the
pleadings. In addition, they refer in their brief to an inspection by the Occupational Safety and
Health Administration, to which they have provided no evidence in support. Finally, Defendants
also make statements concerning actions they have taken to resolve certain problems, but the Court
cannot accept such statements at face value. Therefore, pursuant to FED.R.CIV.P. 12(d), this Court
will construe the pending motion as one for Summary Judgment, and will provide the parties the
opportunity to supplement their filings with any additional relevant exhibits, briefs, and/or affidavits.
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss (Doc. No. 17) is
hereby construed as a motion for Summary Judgment.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that any additional relevant exhibits, briefs, and/or affidavits
in support of the parties’ respective positions shall be filed within ten days of the date of this Order.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 24th day of May, 2012.
