ORDER granting 19 plaintiff's counsel's Motion to Withdraw as Attorney and denying 21 plaintiff's Motion for Reconsideration. Signed by District Judge George Caram Steeh. (MBea)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
ESTATE OF DOREEN
CASE NO. 16-CV-11936
HON. GEORGE CARAM STEEH
WILMINGTON TRUST et al.,
ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFF’S COUNSEL’S MOTION
TO WITHDRAW (Doc. 19) AND DENYING PLAINTIFF’S
MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION (Doc. 21)
On November 28, 2016, Judge Rosen granted defendants’ motion to
dismiss this mortgage foreclosure action. On December 27, 2016, Judge
Rosen also denied plaintiff Estate of Doreen Bessette’s motion for
reconsideration. Due to Judge Rosen’s retirement, this action was
reassigned to the undersigned. Now before the court is plaintiff’s counsel’s
motion to withdraw on the basis that plaintiff has insisted that its counsel
file a second motion for reconsideration which counsel finds lacks merit.
Having shown cause, IT IS ORDERED that the motion to withdraw filed by
Jasmina Wikenczy and her law offices (Doc. 19) is GRANTED.
Also, before the court is plaintiff’s pro se motion for reconsideration.
Plaintiff seeks reconsideration of the order of dismissal and the order
denying plaintiff’s first motion for reconsideration. Not only is the motion
untimely, it lacks merit and fails to show any “palpable defect” requiring
reversal or modification of the court’s prior orders. Accordingly, pro se
plaintiff’s motion for reconsideration (Doc. 21) is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: February 6, 2017
