IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF MONTANA BILLINGS DIVISION Cause No. CV-17-50-BLG-SPW-TJC CHARLES M. BUTLER, III, and CHOLE BUTLER, vs. Plaintiffs, ORDER RE PLAINTIFFS' OBJECTION TO UNIFIED'S FILING OF MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION UNIFIED LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY, et al., Defendants Before the Court is Plaintiffs' objection (Doc. 367) to Defendants' filing of an unredacted motion for reconsideration with supporting brief (Docs. 365 & 366). Defendants filed this unredacted motion after the Court granted their unopposed motion to file the documents under seal. (Doc. 364). Plaintiffs now object that the unredacted motion was filed prematurely and in violation of Montana Local Rule 7.3. Local Rule 7.3(a) restricts a party's ability to file a motion for reconsideration without first obtaining leave of the Court to do so. There appears to have been some confusion regarding the extent of the Court's previous order granting Defendants' unopposed motion to file under seal. Although the Court's order was perhaps less than clear, it was the Court's understanding that Case 1:17-cv-00050-SPW-TJC Document 369 Filed 02/17/21 Page 1 of 2 I 1 Case 1:17-cv-00050-SPW-TJC Document 369 Filed 02/17/21 Page 2 of 2
