Ramthun et al v. Bryan Career College - Incorporated et al
ORDER OF RECUSAL. Honorable Timothy L. Brooks recused. Case reassigned to Honorable P. K. Holmes, III for all further proceedings. Signed by Honorable Timothy L. Brooks on March 27, 2014. (Attachments: # 1 Exhibit A)(slc)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
TRACY RAMTHUN and ANGELA CLEMENS
CASE NO. 5:13-cv-5039
BRYAN CAREER COLLEGE, INC. d/b/a
BRYAN COLLEGE and BRYAN UNIVERSITY
The undersigned began active service on the Court March 10, 2014. This matter
was a routine assignment to this Court's docket. On March 27, 2014, the undersigned
received a letter from defense counsel suggesting that the Court should disqualify (see
attached Exhibit A). The undersigned has no recollection of ever having been involved in
the discussions or consulting which counsel describes as having occurred between
members of Taylor Law Partners, LLP and Plaintiffs' counsel, as set forth in the attached
letter. Moreover, the undersigned has no personal knowledge of the facts or the litigation
as described in counsel's letter. To the best of the undersigned's knowledge, Taylor Law
Partners has never been attorney of record for the Plaintiffs, and thus this matter was not
flagged for automatic disqualification. Nevertheless, the Court concurs with defense
counsel that disqualification is appropriate pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §455(b)(2) and otherwise
by §455(a). The undersigned will therefore disqualify and this matter will be reassigned
by the Clerk.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
