Panther Mountain Land Development LLC et al v. National Bank of Arkansas
ORDER granting 1 Motion to Withdraw Reference. Pursuant to the 3 Motion for Notice of Related Case, the Clerk is directed to transfer this case to Judge Holmes. Signed by Judge Kristine G. Baker on 10/30/13. (kpr)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PANTHER MOUNTAIN LAND DEVELOPMENT, LLC, et al.
No. 4:13-mc-00015 KGB
NATIONAL BANK OF ARKANSAS
Before the Court is Defendant National Bank of Arkansas’s (“NBA”) motion to withdraw
the reference (Dkt. No. 1) and notice of related case (Dkt. No. 3). Plaintiffs have responded to
NBA’s motion to withdraw the reference (Dkt. No. 6) and NBA has replied to plaintiffs’
response (Dkt. No. 8).
NBA’s motion to withdraw the reference is granted (Dkt. No. 1). To resolve plaintiffs’
claims against NBA it appears to the Court that it must address substantial and material questions
of federal bankruptcy law and state law. Considering all the material circumstances, NBA has
shown good cause for discretionary withdrawal under 28 U.S.C. § 157(d). The Court thus grants
NBA’s motion to withdraw the reference (Dkt. No. 1).
The Court further finds pursuant to NBA’s notice of related case (Dkt. No. 3) that the
instant case is closely related to a prior case decided by Judge J. Leon Holmes in this Court as
Case No. 4:12-cv-00619. The Clerk of Court is thus directed to transfer this case to Judge
SO ORDERED this the 30th day of October, 2013.
