IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
November 20, 2006
WALLACE GILBERT-MITCHELL, JR., PLAINTIFF,
HARLEY LAPPIN, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Reagan, District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Once again, Plaintiff challenges the transfer of this case to this District. This time, he seeks to have the case returned to the District of Columbia or, in the alternative, to the Southern District of Texas (Doc. 11). The arguments presented as a basis for this request have been rejected by this Court on two prior occasions (see Doc. 9, 10); for the last time, the Court rejects these arguments, and this motion is DENIED. Plaintiff is now WARNED that if he persists in challenging the venue for this action, arguments that have been rejected three times, he may be subjected to sanctions. See FED.R.CIV.P. 11.
Also before the Court is Plaintiff's motion for leave to file an interlocutory appeal (Doc. 12). Not surprisingly, he wishes to appeal the issue of venue. In this case, the orders in question (Docs. 3, 9, 10) are not final decisions, see 28 U.S.C. § 1291, nor do they qualify as appealable interlocutory decisions, see 28 U.S.C. §§ 1292(a), (b). Accordingly, this motion is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
MICHAEL J. REAGAN United States District Judge
