United States District Court, S.D. Alabama, Southern Division
June 20, 2014
MARGARET TAYLOR GIVENS, Plaintiff,
SAXON MORTGAGE SERVICES, INC. and RESIDENTIAL CREDIT SOLUTIONS, INC., Defendants.
KRISTI K. DuBOSE, District Judge.
This action is before the Court on Defendant Saxon Mortgage Services, Inc.'s Motion to Reconsider Order Regarding Saxon's Motion for Summary Judgment (Doc. 72).
The decision to grant or deny a motion to reconsider is left to the discretion of the trial court. Chapman v. AI Transport, 229 F.3d 1012, 1023-24 (11th Cir. 2000) ( en banc ). "In the interest of finality and conservation of scarce judicial resources, reconsideration of an order is an extraordinary remedy and is employed sparingly." Gougler v. Sirius Prod., Inc. , 370 F.Supp.2d 1185, 1189 (S.D. Ala. 2005) (citation omitted).
A review of Saxon's motion to reconsider indicates that Saxon attempts to raise arguments that could and should have been made before the Court ruled on its motion for summary judgment. Moreover, although Saxon cites to new evidence, it makes no attempt to explain why this evidence, with reasonable diligence, could not have been discovered prior to now. Accordingly, it is ORDERED that Saxon's Motion to Reconsider (Doc. 72) is DENIED.
DONE and ORDERED.
