Beverly Enterprises Required to Post $20 Million Bond for Failure to Produce Documents

On August 9, the Arkansas Democrat Gazette reported that Beverly Enterprises was ordered by the Arkansas Supreme Court to comply with Judge Phillips’ ruling and post a $20 million bond for failure to produce documents. Judge Phillips reportedly ordered the bond after “becoming frustrated in obtaining documents in a nursing home care case.” He had considered incarceration of Beverly executives in June, following defendants’ failure to produce documents including email and other electronic data.
