O'Gorman v. Hartford Life and Accident Insurance Company
ORDER denying Plaintiff's 30 Motion for Reconsideration signed by Judge Richard A Jones. (PM)
HONORABLE RICHARD A. JONES
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
JENNI INWOOD O'GORMAN,
CASE NO. C16-1048 RAJ
HARTFORD LIFE AND ACCIDENT
This matter comes before the Court on Plaintiff’s motion for reconsideration. Dkt.
# 30. Pursuant to Local Rules W.D. Wash. LCR 7(h)(1), motions for reconsideration are
disfavored, and will ordinarily be denied unless there is a showing of (a) manifest error in
the prior ruling, or (b) facts or legal authority which could not have been brought to the
attention of the court earlier, through reasonable diligence.
Plaintiff argues that the Court erred when it remanded the matter for further factfinding rather than making a finding of disability. However, this line of reasoning
appears to be no more than a disagreement between the Plaintiff and the Court about the
facts developed in the record. Though Plaintiff is sure that the record should result in a
finding of disability, the Court found that it could not make such a determination based
1 upon the record. Dkt. # 29 at 13. Accordingly, Plaintiff failed to meet her burden under
2 LCR 7(h)(1) and therefore the Court DENIES her motion. Dkt. # 30.
Dated this 18th day of September, 2017.
The Honorable Richard A. Jones
United States District Judge
