IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 7, 2008
GREGORY ANDREW HALL, PLAINTIFF,
EDWARD S. ALAMEIDA, ET AL., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: John A. Mendez United States District Judge
On September 29, 2006, this court entered judgment after ruling on defendants' motion for summary judgment. On February 12, 2007, plaintiff filed a request for reconsideration under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 60(b).
A district court may reconsider a ruling under either Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 59(e) or 60(b). See Sch. Dist. Number. 1J, Multnomah County v. ACandS, Inc., 5 F.3d 1255, 1262 (9th Cir. 1993). "Reconsideration is appropriate if the district court (1) is presented with newly discovered evidence, (2) committed clear error or the initial decision was manifestly unjust, or (3) if there is an intervening change in controlling law." Id. at 1263.
Plaintiff does not present newly discovered evidence. Furthermore, the court finds that, after a de novo review of this case, the September 29, 2006 order adopting the June 27, 2006 findings and recommendations of the magistrate judge and providing an independent analysis of the claimed denial of exercise is neither manifestly unjust nor clearly erroneous.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff's February 12, 2007 motion to vacate judgment is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
