IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
SOUTHERN SNOW MANUFACTURING, INC.
1. The Court resolved several issues at the 21 October 2016 pretrial.
For the reasons stated on the record, the Court made these rulings. First,
Southern Snow waived its objection to personal jurisdiction. Second, even if
the company didn’t waive this point, the Court’s exercise of personal
jurisdiction over Southern Snow in this case satisfies the Due Process Clause.
Third, Prince’s motion for default judgment, ¹ 18, is denied. Prince waived
this issue by not raising it sooner. In any event, and fourth, Southern Snow’s
initial responsive papers sufficiently disputed liability to avoid a default. The
Court directs the Clerk to retitle Southern Snow’s motion to dismiss, ¹ 3, as
a Motion to Dismiss and Answer. Fifth, Prince’s oral motion in limine about
the consulting expert’s work is granted.
