Leon Jackson Rice, Jr., has filed a motion asking for a ruling on three motions that have been

The motion for ruling is GRANTED. Document #36. The Court will rule on the pending motions
after the parties have had an opportunity to brief the effect of the decision by the Arkansas Court of
Appeals on the pending motions. The Court directs the defendants to file a brief within ten days
after the Arkansas Court of Appeals issues its mandate. Rice will have fourteen days thereafter to
file a response, if he chooses to do so.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 2nd day of November, 2011.
