IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS WESTERN DIVISION In re: PREMPRO PRODUCTS LIABILITY LITIGATION : : : : : MDL Docket No. 4:03CV1507-WRW All Cases in Exhibit A ORDER This Order applies to every newly transferred West Virginia case that was filed by the Calwell Practice, PLLC. The cases are listed in Exhibit A (this Order does not apply to closed cases that may appear on the list). Since December, I've entered over 1,000 orders dismissing Defendants in cases filed by the Calwell Practice. It appears that in many of the cases the dismissed Defendants should not have been sued. Since the end to filing these dismissals does not appear to be in sight, I've come up with a remedy. The parties are directed to "meet and confer" to determine which Defendants should be in each case. After "meeting and conferring," Plaintiffs must file amended complaints removing all unnecessary Defendants (without further leave from the Court) by 5 p.m., Tuesday, March 31, 2009. The first paragraph of each amended complaint must set out which Defendant(s) are dismissed based on the amended complaint. If, at a later time, additional motions to dismiss are filed, and it appears that the Defendants should not have been named in the Amended Complaint, I may well impose sanctions. IT IS SO ORDERED this 30th day of January, 2009. /s/ Wm. R.
