IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
June 10, 2008
STEVEN JEAN-PIERRE, PLAINTIFF,
BOP, ET AL., DEFENDANTS,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge Conner
AND NOW, this 10th day of June 2008, upon consideration of plaintiff's motion for reconsideration (Doc. 51) of the memorandum and order of court (Doc. 49) granting defendants' motions to dismiss and for summary judgment , and it appearing that plaintiff fails to set forth any of the grounds that would warrant reconsideration, North River Ins. Co. v. Cigna Reinsurance Co., 52 F.3d 1194, 1218 (3d Cir. 1995) (citations omitted) ("A proper motion to alter or amend judgment must rely on one of three major grounds: '(1) an intervening change in controlling law; (2) the availability of new evidence [not available previously]; [or], (3) the need to correct clear error [of law] or prevent manifest injustice.'"), and merely argues that the court erroneously granted defendants' motions because there exists genuine issues of material fact (Doc. 51), see Waye v. First Citizen's Nat'l Bank, 846 F. Supp. 310, 314 (M.D. Pa.) ("A motion for reconsideration is not to be used to reargue matters already argued and disposed of."), aff'd, 31 F.3d 1175 (3d Cir. 1994); see also Database America, Inc. v. Bellsouth Adver. & Publ'g Corp., 825 F. Supp. 1216, 1220 (D.N.J. 1993) (citations omitted) ("A party seeking reconsideration must show more than a disagreement with the Court's decision, and 'recapitulation of the cases and arguments considered by the court before rendering its original decision fails to carry the moving party's burden.'"), it is hereby ORDERED that plaintiff's motion for reconsideration (Doc. 51) is DENIED.
