United States District Court, S.D. Mississippi, Western Division
Michael T. Parker United States Magistrate Judge.
MATTER is before the Court on the Motion  to Compel filed
by Plaintiff Teresa Beasley. Plaintiff Teresa Beasley seeks
an order from the Court compelling Defendant EF Properties,
LLC (“EF Properties”) to answer certain
interrogatories and produce certain documents. The Court
having carefully considered the motion, the submissions of
the parties, and the applicable law, finds that the Motion
 should be GRANTED.

and Beverly Lang in a state court action. In the current
action, she contends that Robert Lang and Beverly Lang
(“ the Langs”) have frustrated the collection of
that judgment by fraudulently transferring real property to
Defendant EF Properties without consideration, and for the
purpose of preventing Plaintiff from collecting the debt
lawfully owed to her. She contends that EF Properties is
owned and controlled by Eduardo Flechas who was the
Lang's attorney in the underlying state court matter.
Plaintiff requests an order of turnover, whereby all property
owned by the Defendants is transferred to Plaintiff, with the
directive that Plaintiff sell the property to satisfy the
