The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
Pending are Plaintiff's motions for partial summary judgment, which are set for hearing on June 8, 2009. However, on March 31, 2009, the undersigned judge received the attached letter from the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation.
The letter states "[p]resently before the Panel pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1407 is a motion to transfer which includes [this action]," and that the undersigned judge "may wish to wait [on ruling on any pending motion] until the Panel has decided the transfer issue." Accordingly, the motions are deemed withdrawn, and may be re-noticed for hearing after the Panel has decided the transfer issue.
