IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
CORNELIUS BENNETT, ET AL.
NUCOR CORPORATION and
NO. 3:04CV00291 SWW
The parties filed motions for attorneys’ fees on December 2, 2011, and the Court
extended the deadline for responses up to and including January 9, 2012. Now before the Court
is Defendants’ unopposed motion to stay all proceedings with respect to the pending motions for
attorneys’ fees (docket entry #320). Defendants report that the parties will file petitions for
writ of certiorari with the Supreme Court. Defendants assert, and the Court agrees, that it would
be premature and inefficient for the parties and Court to address attorney fee matters prior to
resolution of said petitions.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Defendants’ unopposed motion (docket entry #320)
is GRANTED. Attorney fee proceedings, including the deadline for responses, are stayed until
thirty (30) days after the parties’ petitions have been resolved. The parties are directed to file
notice within five (5) days after disposition of the petitions.
IT IS SO ORDERED THIS 29TH DAY OF DECEMBER 2011.
