IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
Case No. 5:12-cv-00438 KGB
GEICO GENERAL INSURANCE COMPANY
Pursuant to the joint stipulation of the parties (Dkt. No. 40), the Court enters a Confessed
Judgment in favor of plaintiff Kathy Spilker and against defendant GEICO General Insurance
Company (“GEICO”) in the amount of $35,000.00 for recoverable damages under Ms. Spilker’s
policy with GEICO. GEICO shall promptly pay the sum to Ms. Spilker, in accordance with
payment instructions to be provided by her attorney.
Notwithstanding GEICO’s agreement to pay Ms. Spilker’s demand for policy damages,
the parties dispute and reserve for the Court to decide whether GEICO owes any penalty or
attorney’s fees under Ark. Code Ann. § 23-79-208. The Court will retain jurisdiction over this
case to entertain motions concerning these issues or others that have not been resolved by the
joint stipulation. See, e.g., Nationwide Mut. Ins. Co. v. Cumbie, 215 S.W.3d 694 (Ark. App.
2005). Accordingly, the Clerk of the Court is directed not to term this case.
SO ORDERED this 14th day of February, 2014.
