  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON AT SEATTLE 8 9 10 LHF PRODUCTIONS, INC., Plaintiff, v. 11 12 13 Case No. C17-254 RSM ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION DOE 1, et al., Defendants. 14 15 16 On May 19, 2017, the Court granted in part and denied in part Plaintiff LHF Productions, 17 Inc.’s (“LHF”) motion for extension of time to serve its Amended Complaint. Dkt. #14. In its 18 Order, the Court granted LHF a 30-day extension. Id. at 4. LHF, unsatisfied with the amount of 19 20 21 time the Court granted, asks the Court to reconsider its Order. See Dkt. #14 at 1-4. The Court remains unpersuaded by LHF. 22 As stated in Local Civil Rule 7(h)(1), “[m]otions for reconsideration are disfavored.” 23 Consequently, the Court will “ordinarily deny such motions in the absence of a showing of 24 25 26 manifest error in the prior ruling or a showing of new facts or legal authority which could not have been brought to [the Court’s] attention earlier with reasonable diligence.” LCR 7(h)(1). LHF fails 27 to address this standard. Instead of showing a manifest error in the Court’s Order, or directing the 28 Court to new facts or legal authority which could not have been brought to the Court’s attention ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION — 1                            1 earlier, LHF simply concludes the Court “overlooked or misapprehended certain important 2 matters,” then outlines five reasons explaining why it disagrees with the Court’s Order. Dkt. #14 3 at 1-4. LHF’s motion, aside from failing to meet the LCR 7(h)(1) standard, fails to persuade the 4 Court. LHF’s motion for reconsideration (Dkt. #15) is accordingly DENIED. 5 6 Dated this 16th day of June 2017. 7 8 A 9 RICARDO S. MARTINEZ CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION — 2
