UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION L. RUTHER, Plaintiff, Case No. 17-cv-10176 Hon. Matthew F. Leitman v. STATE OF MICHIGAN, Defendant. _________________________________/ ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION (ECF #8) On May 12, 2017, Plaintiff L. Ruther filed a handwritten motion titled “Motion Stay Order 5-3-17.” (See ECF #8.) As with Ruther’s previous filings in this action, it is very difficult for the Court to discern Ruther’s handwriting.1 It appears that Ruther is requesting that the Court reconsider its May 3, 2017, Order dismissing his Amended Complaint without prejudice. (See ECF #3.) The Court will therefore construe Ruther’s current filing as a motion for reconsideration of that Order. 1 On January 25, 2017, the Court entered an Order to Show Cause in which it, among other things, ordered Ruther to re-file his Complaint either “in a typed format” or hand-written on “every other line of paper” while using “both uppercase and lowercase letters (i.e., [not using] all capital letters).” (ECF #3 at Pg. ID 7.) Ruther failed to comply with the Show Cause Order and his current motion likewise does not comply with the legibility requirements of the Show Cause Order. 1 Ruther’s reconsideration motion is DENIED because he has not demonstrated a palpable defect by which the Court has been misled nor shown that correcting such a defect (if it exists) would result in a different disposition of the case. See E.D. Mich. Local Rule 7.1(h). IT IS SO ORDERED.             s/Matthew F. Leitman MATTHEW F. LEITMAN UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE Dated: May 31, 2017 I hereby certify that a copy of the foregoing document was served upon the parties and/or counsel of record on May 31, 2017, by electronic means and/or ordinary mail. s/Holly A. Monda Case Manager (313) 234-5113 2
