United States of America v. $389,820.00 in United States Currency et al
ORDER denying 38 Motion to reconsider, as further set out in order. Signed by Honorable Judge W. Harold Albritton, III on 7/20/17. (djy, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
$389,820.00 IN UNITED STATES
CURRENCY, et al.,
CIVIL ACTION NO.: 2:16cv985-WHA
This case is before the court on a Motion to Reconsider Order Determining In Rem
Jurisdiction (Doc. # 38).
Consideration of a post-order motion to reconsider is left to the sound discretion of the
district court. Chapman v. Al Transport, 229 F.3d 1012, 1023–24 (11th Cir. 2000). Motions for
reconsideration generally serve a very narrow function: they are designed solely to correct
manifest errors of law or fact or to present newly discovered evidence that could not have been
discovered at the time of the original motion. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 60. Because “litigants cannot be
repeatedly called upon to backtrack through the paths of litigation,” reconsideration of a previous
order is an extraordinary remedy to be employed sparingly. Sussman v. Salem, Saxon & Nielsen,
153 F.R.D. 689, 694 (M.D. Fla. 1994).
After consideration of the arguments of Claimant, the court finds no reason to reconsider
and it is hereby
Ordered that the Motion to Reconsider is DENIED.
Done this the 20th day of July, 2017.
