   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  13-3315
   U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas - Little Rock    
   [PUBLISHED] [Colloton, Author, with Wollman and Benton, Circuit Judges] 
   Civil case - Securities Fraud. In action against lead underwriter for two 
   mutual funds alleging the underwriter misrepresented the policies, 
   structure and quality of the funds in violation of Arkansas, New Jersey 
   and federal law, the district court did not err in determining the claims 
   were time-barred under Arkansas and federal law; plaintiffs' pursuit of 
   arbitration did not toll the federal statute of limitations; with respect 
   to claim under New Jersey law, the claim was timely filed, and the 
   district court erred in dismissing it; claims were untimely under Arkansas 
   Code Sec.23-42-106(f) and were properly dismissed; order denying leave to 
   amend is reversed and the matter is remanded to the district court to 
   consider the motion anew in light of this decision.

   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  14-2651
   U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas - Fayetteville    
   [PUBLISHED] [Beam, Author, with Gruender and Benton, Circuit Judges] 
   Criminal case - Criminal law. The district court erred in granting

   abetting the making of a false statement in relation to a bankruptcy case 
   in violation of 18 U.S.C. Sections 152(3) and 2; while the court erred in 
   granting a judgment of acquittal on this count, it did not err in granting 
   defendant a new trial on the count based on the ground that the false 
   statement instruction was erroneous; the court did not err in granting 
   defendant a new trial on the conspiracy, bankruptcy fraud and money 
   laundering counts based upon the weight of the evidence. Judge Gruender, 
   concurring in part and dissenting in part.
