BELLIARD v. ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND PLC

United States District Court, Southern District of New York


April 16, 2003

PORFIRIO O. BELLIARD, PLAINTIFF
v.
THE ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND PLC, DEFENDANT

The opinion of the court was delivered by: VICTOR Marrero, United States District Judge

DECISION AND ORDER

Plaintiff Porfirio O. Belliard ("Belliard") has moved pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 59(e) and the Court's Local Civil Rule 6.3 for reconsideration and reargument with respect to the Court' Decision and Order dated February 25, 2003 dismissing this action pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 41 for failure to prosecute. In this connection, the Court has considered Belliard's motion and defendant's opposition. Applying the criteria relevant to evaluation of such motions, see Montanile v. National Broadcasting Co., 216 F. Supp. 341 (S.D.N.Y. 2002), aff'd, 57 Fed. Appx. 27, 2003 WL 328825 (2d Cir. Feb. 13, 2003), the Court denies the request.

Belliard does not point to any compelling facts or controlling authority the Court misunderstood or overlooked. Whether or not Belliard's counsel was personally present at the September 26, 2002 conference with the Court, he provides no sufficient explanation for the repeated instances cited by the Court in which Belliard and/or his counsel did not appear at scheduled conferences or depositions or otherwise missed deadlines without explanation and without excusal by the Court.

ORDER

For the reasons stated above and in the Court's Decision, Belliard's motion for reconsideration is DENIED.

SO ORDERED.
