IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS HOT SPRINGS DIVISION JOHN DOE AND MARTHA ROE, Individually and as Next Friends of JANE DOE, a minor VS. CASE NO. 08-6076 DEFENDANTS
DELIGHT PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT, et al. ORDER
Currently before the Court is the defendants' Notice of Interlocutory Appeal and Motion to Stay (Docs. 44, 45).

It is well settled that a denial of summary judgment on the grounds of qualified immunity may be reviewed on interlocutory appeal. See Mitchell v. Forsyth, 472 U.S. 511, 528 n. 9; Vaughn v. Accordingly, defendants'
Gray, 557 F.3d 904, 908 (8th Cir. 2009).
Motion to Stay (Doc. 45) is hereby GRANTED and this action is hereby administratively terminated pending adjudication of
defendants' interlocutory appeal by the Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. IT IS SO ORDERED this 29th day of June, 2009.
