DONNA C. EDWARDS; THOMAS

CIV. 12-00102 SOM
ORDER DENYING MOTION TO
RECONSIDER 3/19/12 ORDER
DENYING 3/9/12 MOTION TO
ORDER DENYING MOTION TO RECONSIDER 3/19/12 ORDER
DENYING 3/9/12 MOTION TO AMEND JUDGMENT
Plaintiff Glenn K. Mizukami has moved for
reconsideration of this court's earlier order denying his Motion
To Amend Judgment.
The court continues to read Mizukami as essentially
challenging state court rulings.
As the court has explained more
than once in this case, it is without jurisdiction to review
state court rulings.
This court is well aware that, having found
a lack of jurisdiction, it may not then hypothesize that it does
indeed have jurisdiction and address the merits of the case.
denying the Motion To Amend Judgment, this court, while not
seeking to hypothesize jurisdiction, recognized that it might be
misreading some of Mizukami's claims, in which event the issue
was not one of subject matter jurisdiction but of failure to
state a claim.
Nothing in the reconsideration motion persuades
the court to revisit its prior ruling.
To the extent Mizukami's reconsideration motion repeats
allegations that the court already had before it when the court
denied the Motion To Amend Judgment, Mizukami does not show error
by this court.
To the extent Mizukami is providing new factual
allegations, he does not indicate why those could not have been
presented earlier or why they constitute newly discovered
The judgment entered on
February 29, 2012, remains in
effect, and the court denies the motion to reconsider the order
that denied the Motion To Amend Judgment.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: Honolulu, Hawaii, March 29, 2012.
