Shadle v. State of Nebraska
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER denying the 8 Motion for Reconsideration and the judgment dismissing this case without prejudice shall stand. Ordered by Senior Judge Richard G. Kopf. (Copy mailed to pro se party)(MKR)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
DILLON ANDREW SHADLE,
STATE OF NEBRASKA,
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
I will deny the Petitioner’s motion to reconsider the dismissal without prejudice
of his amended petition because it was not filed by the deadline of July 5, 2016. The
evidence shows on the last page of filing no. 9 (the amended petition) that the required
amended petition was not placed in the prison mail box until July 6, 2016. (See Pitney
Bowes stamp1). As a result, he cannot claim the benefit of the “prison mail box” rule.
See, e.g., Miller v. Lincoln Cty., 171 F.3d 595, 595 (8th Cir. 1999) (prison mail box
rule did not save notice of appeal because it was placed in the prison mail system one
IT IS ORDERED that the motion to reconsider (filing no. 8) is denied and the
judgment dismissing this case without prejudice shall stand. The Clerk shall terminate
(filing no. 9).
DATED this 9th day of August, 2016.
BY THE COURT:
s/ Richard G. Kopf
Senior United States District Judge
Petitioner’s hand-written date added to the otherwise typed motion for
reconsideration suggests the date of mailing of the amended petition was July 1, 2016.
Petitioner makes no effort to explain the time lag between that hand written date of
July 1, 2016 and the date of the prison’s mail stamp of July 6, 2016. Petitioner has the
burden of proof to show timely mailing under the prison mail box rule. See, e.g., Price
v. Philpot, 420 F.3d 1158, 1165 (10th Cir. 2005). He has not done so.
