IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 10, 2011
ROBERT BENYAMINI, PLAINTIFF,
T. FORSTHY, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
On May 26, 2011, the Magistrate Judge issued an order denying plaintiff's request for the appointment of counsel. On July 26, 2011, plaintiff filed objections to the court's order which is construed as a request for reconsideration of that order. Local Rule 303(b), states "rulings by Magistrate Judges shall be final if no reconsideration thereof is sought from the Court within fourteen days . . . from the date of service of the ruling on the parties. . ." E.D. Local Rule 303(b). Plaintiff's request for reconsideration of the magistrate judge's order of May 26, 2011 is therefore untimely.
Nevertheless, the court will consider plaintiff's request for reconsideration. Pursuant to E.D. Local Rule 303(f), a magistrate judge's orders shall be upheld unless "clearly erroneous or contrary to law." Upon review of the entire file, the court finds that it does not appear that the magistrate judge's ruling was clearly erroneous or contrary to law.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff's July 26, 2011 objections, construed as a request for reconsideration of the magistrate judge's May 26, 2011 order, is affirmed.
