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
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
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.
