McGhee et al v. Little Company of Mary Hospital et al
MEMORANDUM Order. Signed by the Honorable Milton I. Shadur on 4/5/2017:Mailed notice(clw, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
FRANK H. McGHEE and
LITTLE COMPANY OF MARY
HOSPITAL, et al.,
Case No. 17 C 1435
This Court's February 27, 2017 memorandum order ("Order") announced the sua sponte
dismissal of this action brought by Frank McGhee ("McGhee") and Ashley Lombardo because of
a lack of federal subject matter jurisdiction over their claims. Whether prompted by a continued
lack of understanding of the fundamental reason for that dismissal or, perhaps, by his regret over
having paid a $400 filing fee for his mistaken effort, McGhee has filed a motion for extension of
time (Dkt. No. 7) because, as stated in that motion:
We need time to find representation from an attorney that will refile this
We fully understand we do not have the knowledge and lawyer's skills its
[sic] going to take to file this ingest [sic] against us. May 30-days be
granted to find representation.
But the same absence of subject matter jurisdiction that prompted issuance of the Order
bars consideration of McGhee's current Dkt. No. 7 motion, which is therefore denied out of hand.
Indeed, lest McGhee consider the expenditure of further funds to challenge the original dismissal
of this action, he should understand that that 30 day timetable allowed for such an appeal has
already run out.
