Lackey, No. 12-3321, and the court recognizing that the filing of a notice of appeal “confers jurisdiction on the court of appeals and divests the district court of its control over those aspects of the case involved in the appeal,” Griggs v. Provident Consumer Discount Co., 459 U.S. 56, 58 (1982), and the court therefore concluding that it does not have jurisdiction over the pending motion, it is hereby ORDERED that the motion for reconsideration is DISMISSED for want of jurisdiction.
