IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI GREENVILLE DIVISION MASSACHUSETTS MUTUAL LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY V. PLAINTIFF CIVIL ACTION NO. 4:15CV-166-DMB-JMV PURVIS WILLIAM HILL, JR. DEFENDANT Consolidated With PURVIS WILLIAM HILL, JR. V. PLAINTIFF CIVIL ACTION NO. 4:15-CV-184-DMB-JMV MASSACHUSETTS MUTUAL LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY AND JOHN DOES 1-3 DEFENDANTS ORDER By Order [65] dated January 18, 2017, the undersigned denied Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company’s motion for an order requiring, among other things, periodic status reports from Attorney Candace Williamson about her efforts to be appointed administrator of Dr. Purvis Hill’s estate. That Order informed the parties that the Court would, nevertheless, set status conferences as needed. The Court, by separate notice, set a telephonic status conference for January 19 at 3:00 p.m.; however, Ms. Williamson failed to appear. The docket reflects all counsel of record, including Ms. Williamson, received notice of both the Court’s Order [65] and the notice setting the telephone conference. Because Ms. Williamson failed to appear for the conference, and there is no record she sought a continuance, the Court is compelled to order that she be required to file periodic status reports which shall include the following: 1) details of the status of the estate proceedings in Chancery Court and 2) details of efforts made by Ms. Williamson to have a representative appointed for Dr. Hill’s estate. Ms. Williamson must file the first of such reports by January 24, 2017, and shall file an updated report every 21 days thereafter. SO ORDERED this 20th day of January, 2017. /s/ Jane M. Virden UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 2
