Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, as Receiver for Washington Mutual Bank v. Fidelity National Title Insurance Company, Successor By Merger To Lawyers Title Insurance Corporation
ORDER denying 82 Motion for Reconsideration. Signed by District Judge John Corbett O'Meara. (WBar)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE
CORPORATION, as Receiver for
Washington Mutual Bank,
Case No. 14-13706
Hon. John Corbett O’Meara
FIDELITY NATIONAL TITLE INSURANCE
COMPANY, Successor by Merger to
Lawyers Title Insurance Corporation,
ORDER DENYING MOTION
Before the court is Defendant’s motion for reconsideration of the court’s
January 3, 2017 order denying Defendant’s second motion for summary judgment.
The standard for granting a motion for reconsideration is as follows:
Generally, and without restricting the court’s discretion,
the court will not grant motions for rehearing or
reconsideration which merely present the same issues
ruled upon by the court, either expressly or by reasonable
implication. The movant shall not only demonstrate a
palpable defect by which the court and the parties have
been misled but also show that correcting the defect will
result in a different disposition of the case.
LR 7.1(h)(3). A motion for reconsideration “is not properly used as a vehicle to re-
hash old arguments or to advance positions that could have been argued earlier but
were not.” Smith v. Mount Pleasant Schools, 298 F. Supp.2d 636, 637 (E.D. Mich.
2003) (citing Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians v. Engler, 146 F.3d 357,
374 (6th Cir. 1998)).
In its motion for reconsideration, Defendant re-argues matters already ruled
upon by the court, expressly or by implication
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Defendant’s motion for
reconsideration is DENIED.
