Cherry et al v. Shelter Mutual Insurance Company
ORDER granting 36 Motion to Stay. Signed by Honorable Susan O. Hickey on July 30, 2015. (mll)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
GARY L. CHERRY, et al.
Case No. 4:14-cv-04014
SHELTER MUTUAL INSURANCE
Before the Court is the parties’ Joint Motion to Stay Pending Settlement Discussions. (ECF
No. 34). The parties request that the Court enter an order staying all proceedings, including
discovery, in this action pending settlement discussions. On August 11, 2014, the Court entered an
Order staying all proceedings for 90 days. (ECF No. 30). On December 15, 2014, the Court
extended the stay for an additional 90 days. (ECF No. 33). On March 16, 2015, the Court extended
the stay for an additional 90 days. (ECF No. 35). The parties now request an additional stay, as they
continue to work toward resolving the claims. Public policy strongly supports the compromise and
settlement of disputed claims. The Court finds that good cause has been shown for an additional stay
of ninety (90) days.
Accordingly, the motion for stay (ECF No. 36) should be and hereby is GRANTED. This
action is stayed for a period of ninety (90) days. The parties must submit a report to the Court every
thirty (30) days while the stay is in place.
This report should be submitted by letter to
firstname.lastname@example.org. The parties should note that, at the conclusion of ninety (90) days,
should they desire the Court to impose an additional stay, that request should be made by formal
motion to the Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 30th day of July, 2015.
