Magistrate Judge Robert B. Collings: REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS re 204 MOTION for Costs filed by Christine M. Alexander Recommendation: Because the plaintiffs motion for costs for nontaxable postage expenses was untimely, it must be denied. Accordingly, I RECOMMEND that a total of three hundred seventy-nine dollars and sixty cents ($379.60) in taxable costs be TAXED to the defendant as costs of the litigation. I FURTHER RECOMMEND that a separate order enter to that effect. Objections to R&R due by 10/23/2013.(Dolan, Kathleen)

Judge Joseph L. Tauro: ORDER entered.Presently before this court is Defendant Weiners Motion to Strike Letter from Non-Party 220. This case was dismissed on January 16, 2013. Subsequently, several post-judgment motions were filed, including a Motion for Reconsideration, a Motion for Leave to File Amended Complaint, a Motion for Relief from Judgment, and a Motion for Court to Approve Plaintiffs Costs. This court ruled on the last of these post-judgment motions on October 28, 2013. On December 2, 2013, Plaintiffs friend and fellow inmate Joseph Messere wrote this court an Open Letter seemingly styled as a motion to reopen the case. This letter was docketed as entry number 219.Mr. Messere lacks standing to assert any claims in his own right or on Plaintiffs behalf. First, Messere is not a party to this suit, which is closed. Further, Messere does not claim to have suffered any sort of injury.1 Second, to the extent that Messere requests that this court reopen the case on Plaintiffs behalf, courts have routinely held that an unlicensed inmate may not act in a representative capacity.2 In his Opposition 221, Messere appears to argue that he has standing as Plaintiffs next friend.3 Even assuming Messere can show that he has standing as Plaintiffs next friend4 and that this court would treat his Open Letter as a motion, however, the motion would be denied. Messere cites no rule or authority in support of his request. This court has already denied Plaintiffs motions for reconsideration and for relief from judgment. Had Plaintiff wished to further litigate the issues raised in her Complaint, the proper course of action would have been to file an appeal. For the foregoing reasons, Defendants Motion to Strike 220 is ALLOWED. This case shall remain CLOSED. IT IS SO ORDERED. (Geraldino-Karasek, Clarilde)
