JOSEPH S. AMUNDSEN, Defendant. / 17 18 Pro Se defendant Joseph Amundsen has filed another motion to vacate the permanent 19 injunction from his 1983 case. The background of this action is found in prior orders (see, e.g., 20 Dkt. No. 39). In brief, this action was reassigned from Judge Robert Aguilar to the undersigned 21 judge in 2010. That came after defendant, a then-certified public accountant, had voluntarily 22 signed a consent “Final Judgment of Permanent Injunction” with the SEC, due to defendant’s 23 deficient audit report on a financial statement for Olympic Oil and Gas Company. As a result, 24 the 1983 consent judgment permanently enjoined defendant from “appearing or practicing 25 before the Commission in any way,” among other things (Dkt. No. 3 at 3). 26 On October 19, 2015, the undersigned judge denied defendant’s motion for 27 reconsideration of the denial of a prior petition to vacate the injunction (Dkt. No. 77). 28 Defendant now makes a new request to vacate the injunction now moves for reconsideration of 1 that order, but fails to identify any new basis or facts that would warrant reconsideration of this 2 perennial issue. 3 4 For the same reasons stated in numerous prior orders on similar or identical petitions, this petition is DENIED. 5 6 IT IS SO ORDERED. 7 8 Dated: May 16, 2017. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 9 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
