Before the Court is a Motion to Withdraw Reference (ECF No. 1) filed on behalf of
Defendants J.P. Morgan Bank, N.A. and EMC Mortgage Corporation. Also before the Court is a
Joint Motion for Order Granting Withdrawal of Reference and For Order Extending and Setting
Filing Deadlines (ECF No. 15) filed jointly on behalf of all parties. The Court finds this matter ripe
The parties request that this Court withdraw the reference to the bankruptcy court pursuant
to 18 U.S.C. § 157(d) because Plaintiff’s claims do not involve the application bankruptcy law and
primarily implicate state statutes and common law. Specifically, Plaintiff requests damages for
violation of bankruptcy court orders; violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 U.S.C. §1681q;
violation of the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, § 4-88-107; violation of Arkansas Code
Annotated § 18-40-104; breach of contract; slander of title; defamation; conversion; negligence; and
breach of the implied warranty of good faith and fair dealing. The parties also request an extension
of time for Plaintiff to file a response to Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss (ECF No. 12) and an
extension of time for Defendants to file a reply.
Pursuant 18 U.S.C. § 157(d), this Court finds that good cause for withdrawing reference to
the bankruptcy court has been shown. Accordingly, the Motion to Withdraw Reference (ECF No.
1) and the Joint Motion for Order Granting Withdrawal of Reference (ECF No. 15) are GRANTED.
Upon consideration, the Court finds that the parties’ Motion for Order Extending and Setting Filing
Deadlines (ECF No. 15) should be and hereby is GRANTED. Plaintiff’s response to Defendants’
Motion to Dismiss (ECF No. 12) is due on or before April 23, 2012. Any reply by Defendants is
due on or before May 11, 2012.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 18th day of April, 2012.
