ORDER denying 72 Motion for Reconsideration in full as procedurally improper. Reconsideration is proper only in the case of an intervening change of controlling law, the availability of new evidence, or the need to correct a clear error or prevent manifest injustice. Virgin Atl. Airways, Ltd. v. Natl Mediation Bd., 956 F.2d 12451255 (2d Cir. 1992). While Defendants articulate the standard for reconsideration in their motion, their arguments fall short of that high bar. Defendants establish no clear error in the Courts evaluation of the facts and law presented by the parties in their briefing for and against Judgment on the Pleadings and Summary Judgment. Nor do Defendants offer newly available evidence relevant to the Courts Order. Defendants also fail to establish that the Courts ruling, while correct at the time, has been rendered in error by intervening law. A Motion for Reconsideration is not a vehicle for relitigating previously decided issues, or for raising new arguments that could have been raised earlier. Defendants Motion is accordingly denied. The Court also directs the parties' attention to the attached Corrected Memorandum of Decision Granting and Denying, in Part, Defendants' Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings and Denying Defendants' Motion for Summary Judgment. The Corrected Memorandum of Decision remedies a clerical error in the text of the Court's conclusion, which incorrectly stated Plaintiffs' Title VII claims were to continue against individuals in their official capacities. Signed by Judge Vanessa L. Bryant on 10/19/2016. (Hudson, C)
