The Court will hold a status conference at 3:00p.m. on Tuesday,31 July
2012, in courtroom 155B of the Richard S. Arnold U.S. Courthouse in Little
Rock, Arkansas. The Court orders Plaintiffs' counsel, Addie Burks, to appear
and show cause on two issues. First, the Rules require that the Court" shall"
dismiss this case, unless good cause is shown for the failure to make timely
service. FED. R. CIV. P. 4(m). Second, given the earlier correspondence
received, Document Nos. 3, 4, 5 & 6-1, and counsel's lack of response to the
Court's June Order, Document No. 6, the Court is concerned that counsel may
not be discharging her professional obligations. Burks should therefore also
come prepared to show that she is, and has been, doing so. If this showing is
not made, the Court will consider a reference to the appropriate committees.
The Court directs the Clerk to send a copy of this Order to the named
plaintiffs (Dennis Brewer,MichaelJiles,JefferyCarter,and Chris Jackson) and
the interested non-party Ooyce Lewis) who wrote the Court.
