UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF KENTUCKY CENTRAL DIVISION at LEXINGTON CIVIL ACTION NO. 10-3-KSF KIM LOGAN, as Legal Guardian for JAMES O. GUMM, JR. PLAINTIFF and KENTUCKY CABINET FOR HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES, THE UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY AND KENTUCKY MEDICAL SERVICES FOUNDATION v. INTERVENING PLAINTIFFS OPINION & ORDER COOPER TIRE & RUBBER COMPANY DEFENDANT ********** This matter is before the Court upon the motion of the defendant, Cooper Tire & Rubber Company (“Cooper Tire”), to permit the use of a juror questionnaire [DE # 268]. The plaintiff, Kim Logan, as Legal Guardian for James O. Gumm, Jr., has filed her response, concurring with Cooper Tire’s motion on the need for a juror questionnaire, but disagreeing with several of the questions contained on Cooper Tire’s proposed questionnaire. The Court, having reviewed the motion and response, disagrees that a juror questionnaire is necessary in this case. Voir dire conducted by the Court, as supplemented by the counsel for the parties, will be sufficient to select a fair jury in this matter. Accordingly, Cooper Tire’s motion to permit the use of a juror questionnaire is hereby DENIED. This August 1, 2011.
