IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 14, 2011
DAMON JERRELL DUNN, ET AL.
ORDER DENYING REQUEST FOR RECONSIDERATION
On January 21, 2011, the undersigned, acting in his capacity as Chief District Judge of the Eastern District of California, reassigned this action from District Judge Frank C. Damrell Jr. to District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller for all further proceedings.
On February 3, 2011, Plaintiff filed a request for reconsideration of the order to replace District Judge Damrell.
When filing a motion for reconsideration, Local Rule 230(j) requires a party to show the new or different facts or circumstances claimed to exist which did not exist or were not shown upon such prior motion, or what other grounds exist for the motion.
Appendix A to the Local Rules, subsection (f)(4), allows the Chief District Judge of the Eastern District to make reassignments "as are conducive to the equitable division and just, efficient and economical determination of the business of the Court." The recent appointment of a new District Judge to the Eastern District of California provides grounds for reassignment. Plaintiff's request for reconsideration provides no legal grounds to reconsider the propriety of the reassignment.
Accordingly, Plaintiff's request for reconsideration of the order to replace District Judge Damrell is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
