IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
March 22, 2007
KEVIN PAUL WOODRUFF, PETITIONER,
HARLEY G. LAPPIN, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge Caputo
Petitioner, Kevin Paul Woodruff, an inmate at the United States Penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, commenced this action by filing a pro se petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 2241. By Order dated February 7, 2007 (Doc. 2), this Court concluded that § 2241 was unavailable to Petitioner, and the case was summarily dismissed without prejudice. Presently before the Court is Petitioner's motion for reconsideration of that Order. The purpose of a motion for reconsideration is to correct manifest errors of law or fact or to present newly discovered evidence. Harsco Corp. v. Zlotnicki, 779 F.2d 906, 909 (3d Cir. 1985). Upon consideration of the motion, this Court finds that Petitioner has failed to provide the evidence required for a successful motion for reconsideration.
ACCORDINGLY, THIS 22nd DAY OF MARCH, 2007,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT Petitioner's motion for reconsideration (Doc. 3) is DENIED.
