UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
October 3, 2007
ROBERT ALFANO, PLAINTIFF,
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL, ET. AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gershon, United States District Judge
Plaintiff has filed objections to Magistrate Judge Orenstein's order of August 16, 2007. Having reviewed the objections, I conclude that Judge Orenstein's order was neither clearly erroneous nor contrary to law. On the contrary, it was entirely correct. Insofar as plaintiff raises as an objection that Judge Orenstein did not disclose his participation in the prosecution of John Gotti and argues that this raises questions as to his impartiality, I note that plaintiff has now made a motion to Judge Orenstein for his recusal, which is the appropriate vehicle for such a challenge. Judge Orenstein's order is affirmed.
A pretrial conference on defendants' proposed motion for summary judgment will be held on October 18, 2007, at 11:30 a.m.
