Crawford v. Cerner Corporation
ORDER ADMINISTRATIVELY CLOSING CASE. Signed on April 13, 2018 by District Judge Roseann Ketchmark. (Wheeler, LaTandra)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE
WESTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
RHONDA CRAWFORD, individually and
on behalf of all others similarly situated,
Case No. 4:17-00015-CV-RK
ORDER ADMINISTRATIVELY CLOSING ACTION
Now before the Court is the parties’ Joint Status Report regarding arbitration status.
(Doc. 43). On October 11, 2017, the Court compelled arbitration of claims asserted by three optin Plaintiffs (the “arbitration claims”). (Doc. 37.) The Court then stayed the action as to those
claims pending arbitration and directed counsel for the parties to file a joint status report every
90 days until the arbitration claims are finally resolved. (Id.) At that time, claims of the named
plaintiff and other opt-in plaintiffs (the “remaining claims”), which were not subject to
arbitration, continued and were not subject to the stay. Subsequently, the remaining claims were
settled and dismissed with prejudice. (Doc. 41.) As provided in the most recent status report,
the three opt-in plaintiffs have submitted individual arbitration demands to the Cerner Arbitration
Coordinator; and “the parties have had preliminary discussions about the management of the
arbitrations, the selection of an arbitrator and the potential for settlement.”
Additionally, Defendant has provided information on an informal basis “to facilitate discussions
about the possibility of early resolution of the claims.” (Id.)
Therefore, it appearing that there are no issues for the Court’s resolution pending
completion of arbitration, the Court REOPENS1 and ADMINISTRATIVELY CLOSES this
action. In addition, the Court VACATES its prior directive for 90-day status reports (doc. 37),
and instead, DIRECTS counsel for the parties to file a joint status report within ten (10) days of
final resolution of the arbitration claims.
IT IS SO ORDERED.

ROSEANN A. KETCHMARK, JUDGE
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DATED: April 13, 2018
After the remaining claims were dismissed with prejudice, the case was inadvertently closed,
despite still having the case stayed as to the pending arbitration claims. Therefore, the Court reopens this
case at this time to enter this Order.
