IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
BARBARA J. COOPER,
GREYHOUND LINES, INC.,
BEKIR OSMICEVIC and
MCR TRANS, INC.
Pending is the agreed motion to transfer this action to the United States District Court for
the Middle District of Tennessee at Nashville. (Docket # 13). For good cause shown, and in the
interests of justice the motion is GRANTED.
This case arises out of a motor vehicle accident involving a Greyhound Lines, Inc. bus
and an MCR Trans, Inc. tractor-trailer that occurred on March 14, 2010. On July 6, 2010 Travis
L. McCullough, filed the first suit arising from this accident in the United States District Court
for the Middle District of Tennessee at Nashville. Venue would be proper in Tennessee, as
defendants are subject to personal jurisdiction in that district and are currently defending the
above action relating to the same collision. See 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a).1
The Clerk of the Court is directed to immediately TRANSFER PLAINTIFF’S ENTIRE
CASE FILE to the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee at Nashville.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 13th day of April, 2011.
“For the convenience of parties and witnesses, in the interest of justice, a district court may
transfer any civil action to any other district or division where it might have been brought.”
James M. Moody
