(See 1st 20 MFR; 2d MFR; see also 1/30/17 Order (Dkt. # 58).) The court has considered the 21 motions, the relevant portions of the record, and the applicable law. 22 ORDER - 1 1 Pursuant to Local Rule LCR 7(h)(1), motions for reconsideration are disfavored, 2 and the court will ordinarily deny them unless there is a showing of (a) manifest error in 3 the prior ruling, or (b) facts or legal authority which could not have been brought to the 4 attention of the court earlier, through reasonable diligence. Local Rules W.D. Wash. 5 LCR 7(h)(1). Mr. Iceberg fails to make either showing with respect to any aspect of the 6 court’s January 30, 2017, order.
