United States of America v. Takata Corporation
ORDER denying 12 Oleg Yarin's Motion for reconsideration. Signed by District Judge George Caram Steeh. (MBea)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
CASE NO. 17-mc-50300
HON. GEORGE CARAM STEEH
ORDER DENYING OLEG YARIN’S
MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION (Doc. 12)
On August 28, 2017, this court denied two motions filed pro se by
Oleg Yarin seeking an order from this court and a designation by the
United States Attorney’s Office establishing that he is the victim of crimes
perpetuated by Takata Corporation (“Takata”). Yarin does not allege that
he suffered any personal injury as a result of a defective Takata airbag
inflator malfunction, but alleges that he has suffered economic, health and
emotional damages because his automobile was allegedly fitted with a
faulty Takata airbag inflator. The court previously determined that Yarin is
not covered by the Restitution Order and was not entitled to crime victim
status. Now before the court is Yarin’s third motion for a ruling that he is a
crime victim which the court construes as a motion for reconsideration.
The court will also deny Yarin’s motion for reconsideration. Local
Rule 7.1(h)(3) provides that a court will not grant motions for
reconsideration “that merely present the same issues ruled upon by the
court, either expressly or by reasonable implication.” The movant bears a
heavy burden and “must not only demonstrate a palpable defect by which
the court and the parties and other persons entitled to be heard on the
motion have been misled but also show that correcting the defect will result
in a different disposition of the case.” Id.; see DirecTV, Inc. v. Karpinsky,
274 F. Supp. 2d 918, 921 (E.D. Mich. 2003). Having failed to meet this
heavy burden, Yarin’s motion for reconsideration (Doc. 12) is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
