IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
Guardian of the Estate of Mary
We're having a one-hour hearing tomorrow on the pending
motions. Each side will have thirty minutes to argue. This is not an
evidentiary hearing or the trial on the merits. Each side has already
made voluminous filings, which the Court has done its best to review.
The Court required each party to list the papers it planned to argue
from by 14 March 2018, Ng 70. The Court did so to avoid surprises and
because it thought there might be another document or two that one
side or the other would want to argue from. Centennial listed twenty
Most appear to be new.
It is a practical
impossibility for counsel to use all these materials in thirty minutes or
for the Court to digest them during the hearing. The Court intends to
hear argument, and rule from the bench, not take the motions under
advisement. Counsel should plan their presentations accordingly.
The Court will disregard Wood's reply,
may use the attachments in her argument tomorrow. The Rules don't
allow a reply without the Court's permission. And this one is belated.
In the future, though, any moving party may file a reply within seven
calendar days of the response. Please keep any reply short, limited to
true rebuttal. Centennial' s motion to strike, Ng 72, is denied as moot.
