IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 15, 2013
JEFFREY MCDOWELL, PLAINTIFF,
CAL PIA, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Carolyn K. Delaney United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, commenced this action with the filing of a complaint on January 28, 2013. (Dkt. No. 1.) He consented to this court's jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(c) and Local Rule 302. (Dkt. No. 4.) By order filed March 20, 2013, the undersigned ordered that this action be dismissed without prejudice due to plaintiff's failure to timely file an application to proceed in forma pauperis. (Dkt. Nos. 5, 6.)
On April 8, 2013, plaintiff filed a motion for reconsideration of the judgment of dismissal, attaching a proposed amended complaint and a copy of his request for a trust account statement. (Dkt. No. 7.) Local Rule 305(c) provides: "Upon the entry of a final judgment in any action disposed of by a Magistrate Judge on consent of the parties under the authority of 28 U.S.C. § 636(c) and these Rules, an aggrieved party may appeal directly to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in the same manner as governs appeals from any other final judgment of the Court." See Fed. R. Civ. P. 73(c). Moreover, the undersigned's March 20, 2013 order of dismissal is not "clearly erroneous or contrary to law." See Local Rule 303(f).
Accordingly, plaintiff's April 8, 2013 motion for reconsideration (Dkt. No. 7) is denied.
