Capitol Avenue Little Rock, AR 72201-3325 Re: Markiba Johnson, et al vs. Frac Tech Service, LLC U.S. District Court Case No. 4:09~CV-00739 DPM Dear Judge Marshall: As you know, there are two pending motions in this case currently before the Court; Plaintiffs l Motion for Liquidated Damages (Doc. 202), and Plaintiffs' Motion for Attorneys' Fees and Costs (Doc. 211). After the announcement ofthe verdict, this Court directed the parties to work together to negotiate a settlement of Plaintiffs' attorneys' fees. The initial negotiations were unsuccessful, and Defendant previously filed objections to both of these Motions. However, on Monday, July 25, 2011, Mr. Paul Hash, of Jackson Lewis LLP, entered his appearance on behalf of Frac Tech in Smith, et al. v. Frac Tech Services, LLC, U.S.D.C. Case No. 4:09-CV-0679 JLH. In the process of negotiating a settlement of that matter, the parties were able to reach a settlement on all outstanding issues in this case as well. We jointly ask the Court to refrain from entering final judgment allowing uS to submit a stipulation of dismissal with prejudice and allowing the parties to enter into a private settlement agreement.
