IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
LARY W. GREMP, Plaintiff, v. SONOMA COUNTY, et al., Defendants /
No. C-08-2303 MMC ORDER DENYING ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION FOR ENTRY OF JUDGMENT AS TO DEFENDANT KATHLEEN DELOE
United States District Court
Before the Court is plaintiff's "Administrative Motion for Entry of Judgment as to Defendant Kathleen Deloe," filed October 23, 2008, by which plaintiff seeks entry of final judgment as to his claims against defendant Kathleen Deloe ("Deloe").1 The motion is procedurally improper because the matter presented is governed by a federal rule, specifically, Rule 54(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. See Civil L.R. 7-11 (providing "motion for administrative relief" improper where matter presented is "governed by a federal statute, Federal or local rule or standing order").

Moreover, the motion is substantively deficient, because plaintiff has failed to make any showing why entry of final judgment as to plaintiff's claims against Deloe would be proper, much less show that this is an "unusual case in which the costs and risks of multiplying the number of proceedings and of overcrowding the appellate docket are outbalanced by pressing needs of the litigants for an early and separate judgment as to some claims or parties." See Morrison-Knudsen Co. v. Archer, 655 F. 2d 962, 965 (9th Cir. 1981). Accordingly, plaintiff's motion is hereby DENIED. IT IS SO ORDERED.
