UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT CENTRAL DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS SPRINGFIELD DIVISION
June 27, 2006
KANSAS CITY SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY, PLAINTIFF,
BROTHERHOOD OF LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEERS & TRAINMEN, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Richard Mills, U.S. District Judge
On March 15, 2006, the Court allowed Defendant Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers & Trainmen's summary judgment motion. See d/e 16. The Defendant moved the Court to amend the judgment by ordering statutory interest, attorney's fees, etc. See d/e 18. Plaintiff Kansas City Southern Railway Company opposed the Defendant's motion, arguing that the Court should merely affirm the decision of Arbitrator Benn.
The Defendant's requested relief exceeds the scope of Court's March 15, 2006, Opinion. That Opinion simply decided that Arbitrator Benn's decision was correct. It awarded no fees, interest, etc. Those issues were not before the Court; therefore, the March 15, 2006, Judgment should not be amended to include those items.
Ergo, the Court's March 15, 2006, Judgment (d/e 17) is correct as written. Defendant Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers & Trainmen's Motion to Alter or Amend Judgment (d/e 18) is DENIED.
This case is CLOSED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
