Entry Denying Motion for Reconsideration - Plaintiff has identified no manifest error of law or newly discovered evidence here. As explained in the Order Granting the Defendant's Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings, the complaint was dismissed because it was barred by res judicata. It was the plaintiff's duty when he brought the first lawsuit to allege every claim related to those facts at issue in the first lawsuit at that time. Res Judicata bars a plaintiff from "relitigating issues that were or could have been raised" in a previous action. Highway J Citizens Grp. v. U.S. Dep't of Transp., 456 F.3d 734, 741 (7th Cir. 2006). That is what the plaintiff is attempting to do here. Accordingly, his motion for reconsideration [dkt 17] is denied. Copy to Plaintiff via U.S. Mail. Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 1/26/2016.

ENTRY DENYING MOTION TO RECONSIDER - To prevail on a motion to reconsider, White must show that the summary judgment ruling was based on an error of fact or law or that the Court misunderstood his motion. He has not shown any of these things. White may eventually prevail on his claims against Poore, but he has not shown that he is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. Accordingly, the motion to reconsider [dkt 44] is denied. (See Entry.) Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 2/23/2017. (JLS)
