ORDER denying pro se deft Stephen Hrobuchak's MSJ 232 as untimely. (See order for complete details.) Signed by Chief Judge Christopher C. Conner on 10/18/16. (ki)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
REFRIGERATED LINES, by
LAWRENCE V. YOUNG, ESQ.,
NEW PRIME, INC., et al.,
CIVIL ACTION NO. 1:13-CV-2163
(Chief Judge Conner)
AND NOW, this 18th day of October, 2016, upon consideration of the
motion (Doc. 232) for summary judgment filed yesterday by pro se defendant
Stephen Hrobuchak (“Hrobuchak”), and the court noting that the dispositive
motion deadline expired more than eighteen months ago on April 1, 2015, (Doc.
130), and the court observing that a party seeking to file a nunc pro tunc motion for
summary judgment “must make a formal motion for extension of time” and therein
demonstrate “excusable neglect” justifying the late filing, Drippe v. Tobelinski, 604
F.3d 778, 784-85 (3d Cir. 2010), and further observing that relevant factors to be
considered in measuring excusable neglect include “the danger of prejudice . . . ,
the length of the delay and its potential impact on judicial proceedings, the reason
for the delay, including whether it was within the reasonable control of the movant,
and whether the movant acted in good faith,” id. (quoting Pioneer Inv. Servs. Co. v.
Brunswick Assocs., 507 U.S. 380, 395 (1993)), and it appearing that Hrobuchak has
made no such motion or showing, it is hereby ORDERED that Hrobuchak’s motion
(Doc. 232) for summary judgment is DENIED as untimely.
/S/ CHRISTOPHER C. CONNER
Christopher C. Conner, Chief Judge
