IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS PINE BLUFF DIVISION * * Plaintiff, * * vs. * * PRINCIPAL LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY * and THELMA NELSON, * * * Defendants. * Order Because this case involves proceeds under an employee welfare plan subject to and governed by ERISA, the Court recently issued an ERISA Scheduling Order. It has come to the Court's attention, however, that the action does not involve interpretation of the plan or eligibility for benefits. Instead, the case involves questions as to whether alcohol was a contributing cause to the injury and whether seat belts were in use, and a determination of the proper beneficiaries. The Court therefore rescinds the ERISA scheduling order issued on July 9, 2010. DATED this 13th day of August, 2010. WILLIAM WELCH ESTATE, No. 5:09CV00354 SWW /s/Susan Webber Wright UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
