IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 19, 2009
E'DRICK BROWN PETITIONER,
ROBERT A. HOREL, ET AL., RESPONDENTS.
On September 8, 2009, petitioner filed a motion requesting reconsideration of the magistrate judge's order filed April 21, 2009, denying petitioner's motion for the appointment of counsel. Local Rule 72-303(b), states "rulings by Magistrate Judges shall be final if no reconsideration thereof is sought from the Court within ten court days . . . from the date of service of the ruling on the parties." E.D. Local Rule 72-303(b). Petitioner's motion is untimely and will be denied. Also in his motion for reconsideration, petitioner requests an evidentiary hearing. Petitioner provides no explanation or legal basis for such a hearing; therefore, the request will be denied.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Petitioner's September 8, 2009 motion for reconsideration (Doc. No. 28) is denied; and
2. Petitioner's request for an evidentiary hearing (Doc. No. 28) is denied.
