IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
BILL ELLIOTT, as Administrator of
the Estate of Kelly Elliott, Deceased
No. 3:12CV00152 JLH
DOUBLE J TRANSPORT, LLC;
FRANK L. JACKSON, JR.;
ERIC JOHNSON; and JOHN DOES 1-10
The defendants have filed a motion for continuance and extension of deadlines. This case is
currently scheduled for trial sometime during the week of October 21, 2013. The defendants’ motion
for continuance recites that counsel has only recently re-established contact with the defendants and
has only recently discovered the whereabouts of critical eyewitnesses, none of whom have been
deposed. The motion establishes good cause for the continuance. Furthermore, the Court has two
other cases set for trial during the week of October 21, 2013, in Jonesboro. While the Court can try
two of the three cases, it cannot try all three of them. Since this case does not appear to be ready for
trial, the motion for continuance will be GRANTED. Document #36. This case is removed from the
trial docket for the week of October 21. A new scheduling order will be entered separately.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 1st day of October, 2013.
J. LEON HOLMES
