Civil Action No. 15-cv-01263-PAB
JAMES E. JENNINGS,
MICHELE K. LEE, Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property, and
DIRECTOR OF THE UNITED STATES PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE,
This matter is before the Court on plaintiff’s Motion to Consolidate [Docket No.
15], Motion to Compile [Docket No. 16], and Motions to Compel [Docket Nos. 17 and
18]. In light of plaintiff’s pro se status, the Court construes his filings liberally. Haines v.
Kerner, 404 U.S. 519, 520 (1972); Hall v. Bellmon, 935 F.2d 1106, 1110 & n.3 (10th Cir.
In all four motions, plaintiff asks the Court to consolidate this case with two
others, Jennings v. Lee, 15-cv-01248-PAB, and Jennings v. Lee, 15-cv-01914-LTB,
pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 42(a). Docket No. 15 at 2; Docket No. 16 at 2; Docket No.
17 at 2; Docket No. 18 at 2. Rule 42(a) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedures
provides that “[i]f actions before the court involve common questions of law or fact, the
court may . . . consolidate the actions.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 42(a)(2).
On September 14, 2015, the Court dismissed this case, Docket No. 11 at 2, and
on September 18, 2015, final judgment entered for defendants. Docket No. 12. This
case is closed. Therefore, this case is not properly considered a pending case for
purposes of Fed. R. Civ. P. 42(a).
Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that plaintiff’s Motion to Consolidate [Docket No. 15] is DENIED. It is
ORDERED that plaintiff’s Motion to Compile [Docket No. 16] is DENIED. It is
ORDERED that plaintiff’s Motion to Compel [Docket No. 17] is DENIED. It is
ORDERED that plaintiff’s Motion to Compel [Docket No. 18] is DENIED.
DATED April 4, 2016.
BY THE COURT:
