IN THE UNITED ST ATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS PINE BLUFF DIVISION TIMOTHY CATER, Individually and as Court-Appointed Guardian and Natural Father of Eric Devone Cater, an Incompetent Person v. PLAINTIFF No. 5:18-cv-47-DPM ARKANSAS DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTION; WENDY KELLEY, in Her Individual and Official Capacities as Director of the Arkansas Department of Correction; DALE REED, in His Individual and Official Capacities as Chief Deputy Director of VarnerfVarner Supermax Unit; RANDALL WATSON, in His Individual Capacity and as Warden of Varner/Varner Supermax Unit; JEREMY ANDREWS, in His Individual Capacity and as Deputy Warden of Varner/Varner Supermax Unit; ARRON STONE, in His Individual Capacity and as a Correctional officer of V arnerfVarner Supermax Unit; and JOHN DOES 1-6 DEFENDANTS ORDER Joint motion, Doc. 60, granted on the alternative relief requested. The many prior extensions have not achieved their purpose. And it is unlikely that a further short extension will enable the parties to overcome the virus-related challenges and finish working up this older case for dispositive motions or trial. For good cause, the Court therefore suspends the Fourth Amended Final Scheduling Order, Doc. 55, and stays this case until 4 June 2021. The case is also administratively terminated. The parties must be prepared to sprint on discovery, motions, and trial preparation after the stay is lifted and a new Scheduling Order issues. So Ordered. tr D .P. Marshall Jr. United States District Judge -2-
