Johnson v. Hobbs
ORDER denying 19 Motion for Reconsideration. Signed by Judge Kristine G. Baker on 04/24/2014. (rhm)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
ROBERT EUGENE JOHNSON
Case No. 5:12-cv-00370-KGB-JTR
RAY HOBBS, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction
Before the Court is plaintiff Robert Eugene Johnson’s appeal of the magistrate judge’s
order denying his motion for stay and appointment of counsel to the district judge (Dkt. No. 19).
The Court construes Mr. Johnson’s filing as a motion for reconsideration. Under 28 U.S.C. §
636(b)(1)(A), a district court may reconsider a magistrate judge’s order on non-dispositive
pretrial matters where it has been shown clearly erroneous or contrary to law. Ferguson v.
United States, 484 F.3d 1068, 1076 (8th Cir. 2007). Nothing in the magistrate judge’s order
denying Mr. Johnson’s motion for stay and appointment of counsel is clearly erroneous or
contrary to law. Accordingly, Mr. Johnson’s motion for reconsideration is denied.
SO ORDERED this the 24th day of April, 2014.
KRISTINE G. BAKER
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
