IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
September 8, 2009
RANDALL WILLIAM, PLAINTIFF,
RYDER LEE, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Reagan, District Judge
APPEAL No. 09-2826
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Before the Court is Plaintiff Randall William's motion for reconsideration (Doc. 16). However, over a month ago he filed a notice of appeal in this action (Doc. 8), and that appeal remains pending. Thus, this Court does not have jurisdiction to rule on the instant motion. See Griggs v. Provident Consumer Discount Co., 459 U.S. 56, 58 (1982); Kusay v. United States, 62 F.3d 192, 193 (7th Cir. 1995). See also 16 Charles Alan Wright, Arthur R. Miller, Edward H. Cooper & Eugene Gressman, Federal Practice & Procedure § 3949 at 359 (1977)). Consequently, this Court is without jurisdiction to consider Plaintiff's pleadings. Accordingly, Plaintiff's motion is DISMISSED for lack of jurisdiction.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
