This cause is before the Court on pro se Plaintiff Sandra Kane Karwel’s
“emergency” 1 motion to stay state-court eviction proceedings, specifically case number
05-2013-CA-029797 in the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit, in and for Brevard County, Florida.
(See Doc. 14, p. 2.)
In violation of Local Rule 3.01(a), Plaintiff fails to provide “a memorandum of legal
authority in support” of the requested stay. (See id.) Moreover, Plaintiff’s motion does not
contain enough factual information for the Court to determine whether her request
implicates the Rooker-Feldman doctrine, which bars federal district courts from reviewing
“cases brought by state-court losers complaining of injuries caused by state-court
judgments rendered before the district court proceedings commenced.” Exxon Mobil
Corp. v. Saudi Basic Indus. Corp., 544 U.S. 280, 284 (2005). For those reasons, the Court
finds that Plaintiff’s motion is due to be denied.
Accordingly, it is HEREBY ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that Plaintiff’s motion
(Doc. 14) is DENIED.
DONE AND ORDERED in Chambers in Orlando, Florida, on May 29, 2015.
This is the second time that Plaintiff has labeled a motion as an “emergency”
without specifically articulating why the motion requires expedited relief. (See Docs. 12,
14.) The Court reminds Plaintiff that the “unwarranted designation of a motion as an
emergency motion may result in the imposition of sanctions.” Local Rule 3.01(e).
