I am advised that class certification for members of the S.R,H,S. [sic] Retirement Trust
Is [sic] being sought in the parallel S.R.H.S [sic] litigation filed in the U.S. District Court, Southern
Division. As an aid to federal jurisdiction; [sic] to avoid duplicate and costly litigation and
to allow the benefits of federal class action to inure to all members of the retirement trust
I am ordering a temporary stay in the S.R.H,S [sic] Jackson County litigation effective
The importance of a resolution of the S.R.H.S [sic] litigation to the members of the retirement
trust, to the Jackson County hospital [sic] and to Jackson County is obvious.
The temporary stay, which is now in effect, will require that the hearings, set for tomorrow
( January 13th ), be canceled.
I will provide notice to all parties if, and when, it becomes necessary resume active litigation.
L. B. H.
