IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI GREENVILLE DIVISION ROY STAFFORD v. LAWRENCE KELLY, ET AL. ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR RELIEF FROM JUDGMENT OR ORDER This matter comes before the court on the plaintiff's motion for reconsideration of the court's February 26, 2010, memorandum opinion and judgment denying the plaintiff's motion for a temporary restraining order. The court interprets the motion, using the liberal standard for pro se litigants set forth in Haines v. Kerner, 404 U.S. 519 (1972), as a motion for relief from a judgment or order under FED. R. CIV. P. 60. An order granting relief under Rule 60 must be based upon: (1) clerical mistakes, (2) mistake, inadvertence, surprise, or excusable neglect, (3) newly discovered evidence, (4) fraud or other misconduct of an adverse party, (5) a void judgment, or (6) any other reason justifying relief from the operation of the order. The plaintiff has neither asserted nor proven any of the specific justifications for relief from an order permitted under Rule 60. In addition, the plaintiff has not presented "any other reason justifying relief from the operation" of the judgment. As such, the plaintiff's request for reconsideration is DENIED. SO ORDERED, this the 21st day of May, 2010. PLAINTIFF No. 4:09CV133-P-D DEFENDANTS /s/ W. Allen Pepper, Jr. W. ALLEN PEPPER, JR. UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
