Principale v. Associated Gas & Electric Co.

UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS SECOND CIRCUIT.


decided.: December 20, 1951.

PRINCIPALE
v.
ASSOCIATED GAS & ELECTRIC CO. ET AL.

Before SWAN, Chief Judge, and L. HAND and AUGUSTUS N. HAND.

Per Curiam.

This is an appeal by notice filed March 15, 1951 from two orders of the District Court entered respectively on July 21, 1950 and February 10, 1951. The July order dismissed a complaint which sought to collect on certain "Ageco" securities which had been denied participation in the plan of reorganization confirmed in 1945 and consummated in 1946.*fn1 The February order denied a motion of January 15, 1951 to vacate the July order.

The appeal from the order of July 21, 1950 dismissing the complaint must be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction to review it. It was taken too late. Rule 73(a), F.R.C.P. 28 U.S.C.A.

The notice of motion denied by the order of February 10, 1951 was an effort to obtain a reconsideration of the July order, and was also too late. Such a motion must be served not later than ten days after entry of the judgment. Rule 59(b), F.R.C.P. Assuming that the denial of such a motion is appealable, the order denying it was correct and should be affirmed.

So ordered.
