Rider et al v. Regions Financial Corporation et al
ORDER denying deft's 22 Motion for Reconsideration of the Order cancelling the hearing scheduled for 8/9/11. Signed by Chief Judge J. Leon Holmes on 8/8/11. (vjt)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
ELIZABETH RIDER, ROBERT
BRADLEY HENSLEY, JOHN L. IRONS, and
REBECCA IRONS, as individuals and on
behalf of all others similarly situated
No. 4:11CV00375 JLH
REGIONS FINANCIAL CORPORATION
and REGIONS BANK
Regions Bank has filed a motion for reconsideration of the Order cancelling the hearing
scheduled for August 9, 2011. Regions Bank contends that the Court has jurisdiction to rule, which
is correct, and that waiting on the Judicial Panel on Multi-District Litigation to rule on the transfer
issue would unduly delay these proceedings. While there may be some delay in waiting for the
Multi-District Litigation Panel to rule on the transfer issue, the Court would be surprised if the delay
is lengthy. If the Multi-District Litigation Panel decides to transfer this case, it would be better for
the pending motions to be decided by the transferee court so as to ensure uniformity among all of
the cases that have similar issues pending. If, however, the Multi-District Litigation Panel concludes
that this case should not be transferred, the Court will schedule a hearing on the pending motions as
promptly as possible.
Therefore, the motion for reconsideration is DENIED. Document #22.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 8th day of August, 2011.
J. LEON HOLMES
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
