GEORGE L. AARON, Plaintiff, v. DICKINSON, et al., Defendants.

No. Civ S-05-0173 LKK PAN P.United States District Court, E.D. California.
May 15, 2006

LAWRENCE KARLTON, Senior District Judge

On March 23, 2006, the Magistrate Judge issued an order denying plaintiff’s motion to compel a further response to request for production of documents no. 1. On April 19, 2006, plaintiff filed a request for reconsideration of that order.[1] That request was signed April 15, 2006.

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). Plaintiff’s request for reconsideration of the magistrate judge’s order of March 23, 2006 is therefore untimely.
