Librace v. Social Security Administration
ORDER denying Librace's request to alter or further amend the 35 Amended Judgment. If Librace wants to challenge this Court's rulings, his remedy - at this point in this case - is to seek review of those rulings by the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. Signed by Judge D. P. Marshall Jr. on 5/4/2017. (jak)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION,
The Court notes Librace's objection, Ng 36. He objects to this Court's
recent Order, Ng 34, which granted the Acting Commissioner's motion to
amend the Judgment, and to the resulting Amended Judgment, Ng 35.
Construing Librace's recent paper as a Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 59(e)
motion to alter or further amend the Amended Judgment, the Court denies
the request. First, in amending the Judgment, the Court acted pursuant to
Rule 60(a), not Rule 52(b).
The Acting Commissioner sought relief
approximately four months after the Court made its mistake and
approximately three months after being served with Librace' s new lawsuit,
No. 2:16-cv-166-KGB-BD, Ng 6. This was within a reasonable time. United
States v. Mansion House Center North Redevelopment Co., 855 F.2d 524, 527 (8th
Cir. 1988) (per curiam). Second, whatever mailing or service problems have
occurred in the new case, in this case Librace got the Magistrate Judge's
recommendation last fall and objected to it. NQ 28 & 29. He also got the recent
motion to amend the Judgment, and objected to that motion, too. NQ 32 & 33.
The Court received and considered his objections before ruling. Third, the
Court stands by its 26 April 2017 Order and its Amended Judgment. NQ 34 &
35. Like all litigants who do not prevail, if Librace wants to challenge this
Court's rulings, his remedy- at this point in this case -is to seek review of
those rulings by the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.
R. APP. P. 3 &4(a).
D.P. Marshall Jr.
United States District Judge
