Rice v. Tohan et al
ORDER on Motions 53 , 55 , 70 . Signed by District Judge Sharion Aycock on 2/23/2017. (dbm)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI
CHARLENE D. RICE
CIVIL ACTION NO. 1:15-CV-182-SA-DAS
A&S TRANSPORTATION, INC.
For all of the reasons fully explained in a separate memorandum opinion issued this same
day, the Defendant’s Motion for Partial Summary Judgment  is GRANTED in part, and
DENIED in part. Summary judgment is GRANTED in the Defendant’s favor on the all claims
for damages related to the Plaintiff’s knees, all claims related to lost wages and decreased
earning capacity, all claims based on negligence per se, and on the issue of punitive damages.
Summary judgment is DENIED as to the Plaintiff’s claims for damages related to her right arm.
Because the Court here grants the Defendant’s motion for summary judgment as to
punitive damages, the Defendant’s Motion to Bifurcate  the proceedings is MOOT.
The Defendant’s Motion to Strike  is DENIED. Because the Plaintiff indicated that
the following witnesses will not testify at trial, the Defendant’s objection to their testimony is
MOOT: Gallaher, Pillow, Watkins, Theriot, Mosley, Prewitt, Seigler, Taylor, Newell, Orender,
Harris, Stronach, Roberson, and Green. Because the Plaintiff indicated that the following
witnesses will not testify as to causation at trial, the Defendant’s objection to their testimony is
also MOOT: Tate, Rodgers, V. Gray, and Bartee. The Defendant’s motion to strike Pritchard’s
testimony is DENIED without prejudice.
So ORDERED on this the 23rd day of February, 2017.
