Re: Multiple requests for various records

 

Disposition: Denying plaintiff's motion for reconsideration

  • Litigation Considerations: The court holds that "[plaintiff] has . . . not shown that justice requires the Court to reconsider its interlocutory order." The court relates that "[plaintiff] argues that she failed to respond because she did not receive the motion after she was transferred[.]" The court finds that "[plaintiff] has not explained how non-delivery of the motion papers precluded her from responding to the DOJ's motion." "[Plaintiff] has an obligation to monitor the dockets of the cases in which she is a party." "She did not do so." "And, as the DOJ emphasizes, [plaintiff] contends only that that the motion was not delivered to her at the new facility." "She does not allege that she never saw the motion." "To the contrary, [plaintiff] had the motion in her possession and even took action on it by requesting more time to respond."
