accord with the procedure of the state where the court is located, but a federal statute governs to
the extent it applies.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 60(a)(1). Additionally, Rule 69(a)(2) provides that “[i]n
aid of the judgment or execution, the judgment creditor . . . may obtain discovery from any
person–including the judgment debtor–as provided in these rules or by the procedure of the state
where the court is located.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 69(a)(2).

UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
Section 16-66-104(a) sets forth a general form that may be used as a guide and changed
to suit each particular case. For example, a writ of execution in this case would be directed to
the United States Marshal of the Eastern District of Arkansas, rather than a state officer.
