IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
September 11, 2007
D. WALLACE MITCHELL, PETITIONER,
BRIAN A. BLEDSOE, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Clifford J. Proud U. S. Magistrate Judge
Before the Court is petitioner's motion for reconsideration of the Court's order granting respondent additional time to file a responsive pleading. (Doc. 15). Petitioner asserts that he never received a copy of respondent's motion for the extension of time, nor did he receive a copy of the Court's order.
Respondent's motion contains a certificate of service. Petitioner has not shown any basis for doubting that certificate. Petitioner changed his address of record, which may explain why he did not receive a copy of the motion and order. A change of attorneys necessitated the extension of time, and petitioner has failed to cite any prejudice caused by the extension.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that petitioner's motion for reconsideration (Doc. 15) is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
