Robinson v. COLQUITT EMC et al
ORDER denying 30 Motion for Reconsideration. Ordered by U.S. District Judge HUGH LAWSON on 3/24/2014. (nbp)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
Civil Action No. 7:13-CV-92 (HL)
COLQUITT EMC, et al.,
Before the Court is Plaintiff’s Motion for Reconsideration (Doc. 30) of this
Court’s refusal to order Defendant Colquitt EMC to conduct an expensive, timeconsuming electronic search for certain words on its employees’ cell phones and
computers. The Court denied Plaintiff’s request after a telephone conference on
these matters on March 3, 2014. The motion for reconsideration is denied.
Plaintiff moves the Court for reconsideration of its decision pursuant to
Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 59(e). “The only grounds for granting [a Rule 59]
motion are newly-discovered evidence or manifest errors of law or fact.” In re
Kellog, 197 F.3d 1116, 1119 (11th Cir. 1999). “A Rule 59(e) motion cannot be
used to relitigate old matters, raise argument or present evidence that could have
been raised prior to the entry of judgment.” Arthur v. King, 500 F.3d 1335, 1343
(11th Cir. 2007) (quoting Michael Linet, Inc. v. Village of Wellington, Fla., 408
F.3d 757, 763 (11th Cir. 2005)) (internal punctuation omitted). Plaintiff does not
present any new evidence or point the Court to any binding legal authority that
would cause it to reconsider its decision. His motion is denied.
SO ORDERED, this the 24th day of March, 2014.
