IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
BILLY GLENN POWELL
JUDY G. GRAHAM and FURNITURE
BRANDS INTERNATIONAL, INC.
After the car accident giving rise to this case, but before Powell filed his
lawsuit, Furniture Brands International filed a voluntary petition for
bankruptcy in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware, Case No. 13-12329-CSS.
This petition automatically stayed the
commencement of any lawsuit against Furniture Brands. 11 U.S.C. § 362(a)(1).
The stay bars this case from getting off the ground. Powell’s time for taking
any steps in the case, including service, is extended by operation of law until
thirty days after notice of termination of the stay. 11 U.S.C. § 108(c). Motion
for extension, № 3, denied as moot. The Court administratively terminates
this case subject to timely reopening when the stay is lifted.
