With respect to Interrogatory No. 7, APAC-Tennessee must identify highway
construction contracts it entered with the State of Arkansas during the past 5 years.

review the reports regarding accidents that occurred during the course of Job #110492, they must
then specifically identify what additional information is sought regarding the accidents that

complying with this Order is grounds for me to reconsider my ruling, it may, before producing
the change orders, advise me by letter of its position.
