IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA
No. CV 11-1365-PHX-RCB
Pending before the Court is a Motion for Reconsideration. (Doc. 69.) The Court
will deny the Motion and direct Plaintiff to file his request with the United States Court
of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
Plaintiff filed a civil rights action and First and Second Amended Complaints.
(Docs. 1, 7, 9.)
denied Plaintiff summary judgment, and entered an Order of dismissal. (Docs. 62, 63.)
On April 4, 2013, Plaintiff filed a Notice of Appeal. (Doc. 64.) On April 11, 2013, the
Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals provided Plaintiff an authorization to be completed within
21 days, with instructions that if Plaintiff/Appellant did not comply with the Order, the
appeal could be dismissed. (Doc. 67.) On May 14, 2013, the Court of Appeals issued its
mandate dismissing the appeal. (Doc. 68.)
On March 26, 2013, the Court granted Defendant summary judgment,
On May 23, 2013, Plaintiff filed his Motion for Reconsideration stating that he
“never received the info[rmation] for which Plaintiff[’s] case was dismiss[ed]. Plaintiff
received a[n] incomplete order. Plaintiff never received a prisoner authoriza[tion] form.”
Plaintiff asks the Court for an opportunity to receive the information and to comply with
the Order. (Doc. 69.)
Although this motion was docketed as a Motion for Reconsideration of the Order
of this Court on summary judgment, it appears from the timing of events and the contents
of the Motion that Plaintiff is actually seeking relief from the Mandate from the Ninth
Circuit. This Court is without authority to grant Plaintiff the relief that he appears to
seek. Plaintiff should direct his request to the United States Court of Appeals for the
Ninth Circuit. The Court will direct the Clerk of Court to provide Plaintiff with copies of
the relevant Order and Mandate.
IT IS ORDERED:
The reference to the Magistrate is withdrawn as to the Motion for
Reconsideration (Doc. 69).
The Motion for Reconsideration (Doc. 69) is denied without prejudice.
The Clerk of Court must correct the docket entry to reflect that the Motion
for Reconsideration is for reconsideration of the Order and Mandate from the United
States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (Docs. 67, 68).
The Clerk of Court must provide Plaintiff with copies of the Order and
Mandate (Docs. 67, 68).
