ORDER DENYING MOTION
FOR LEAVE TO FILE MOTION
FOR RECONSIDERATION AND
REFERRING CASE TO
MAGISTRATE JUDGE FOR
An order denied defendants’ motion for summary judgment and stayed the case pending
until four weeks from the date an attorney was appointed to represent plaintiff (Dkt. No. 36).
Plaintiff was appointed counsel on October 6 (Dkt. No. 37). The case remains stayed, so
defendants’ motion for leave to file a motion for reconsideration is DENIED. This is without
prejudice to whether such a motion will be entertained once the stay is lifted.
Defendants should note, however, that if reconsideration is later granted, the Court
would likely give plaintiff, who had been proceeding pro se, the opportunity to file a
supplemental opposition with a sworn declaration now that he has counsel.
Finally, this matter is hereby REFERRED to a randomly-assigned magistrate judge for
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: October 17, 2016.
