Butler, III et al v. Unified Life Insurance Company et al
ORDER STRICKEN FROM THE RECORD WITH LEAVE TO RE-FILE IF APPROPRIATE UNDER LOCAL RULE 7.3 365 MOTION for Reconsideration filed by Unified Life Insurance Company AND 366 Brief in Support Lodged Sealed Document filed by Unified Life Insurance Company Signed by Judge Susan P. Watters on 2/17/2021. (AMC)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF MONTANA
Cause No. CV-17-50-BLG-SPW-TJC
CHARLES M. BUTLER, III, and
ORDER RE PLAINTIFFS'
OBJECTION TO UNIFIED'S
FILING OF MOTION FOR
UNIFIED LIFE INSURANCE
COMPANY, et al.,
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
