IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS WESTERN DIVISION TROY ALLEN TUCKER PLAINTIFF 4:10-cv-00749-JTK JOSEPH BUCKMAN, et al. DEFENDANTS ORDER This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff’s Motion for Pre-Approval of Out-of-Pocket Expenses (Doc. No. 136). In the Motion, Plaintiff’s Court-appointed counsel asks for pre-approval of expenses to exceed $500 associated with retaining a qualified expert to testify on Plaintiff’s behalf. However, Plaintiff’s counsel does not provide the Court with a top dollar amount to consider, and absent such, the Court declines to approve the expenditure of an unknown (or unestimated) amount. Therefore, the Motion is DENIED without prejudice. DATED this 20th day of August, 2012. __________________________________ JEROME T. KEARNEY UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
