UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION JEFFREY AARON, Plaintiff, v. Case No. 15-11014 Honorable Victoria A. Roberts JACKIE DYER, et al., Defendants. ___________________________/ ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR RELIEF FROM JUDGMENT OR ORDER [Doc. 112] On January 12, 2017, a jury returned a verdict in favor of Defendants, finding no cause of action. The Court entered Judgment to that effect on January 17. Following trial, Plaintiff Jeffrey Aaron filed a pro se Motion for New Trial pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 59. In an Order dated August 22, 2017, the Court denied Aaron’s Motion for New Trial. [Doc. 109]. The Court incorporates the factual background and analysis from that Order by reference here. Aaron now moves to vacate the Judgment and for a new trial pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 60(b)(2), (3) and (6). [Doc. 112]. Aaron presents the same arguments and evidence that he set forth in his supplemental brief in support of his Motion for New Trial, [see Doc. 106]. The Court thoroughly addressed those arguments in its Order Denying Aaron’s Motion for New Trial, [see Doc. 109]. Aaron fails to present new evidence or a new argument that entitles him to relief from judgment or relief from the Court’s August 22 Order. For the reasons articulated in the Court’s August 22 Order – as well as other reasons specific to the applicable standards for Rule 60(b) motions – Aaron’s Motion for Relief from Judgment or Order [Doc. 112] is DENIED. IT IS ORDERED. S/Victoria A. Roberts Victoria A. Roberts United States District Judge Dated: September 14, 2017September 14, 2017 The undersigned certifies that a copy of this document was served on the attorneys of record and Jeffrey Aaron by electronic means or U.S. Mail on September 14, 2017. s/Linda Vertriest Deputy Clerk 2
