Yesterday, Roger Clemens’ filed a motion asking the judge in the defamation action to reconsider his February 12th ruling which essentially gutted his case. As I sat here a few minutes ago reading about it, I realized that I couldn’t recall a single instance in my nearly 11-year legal career in which a motion for reconsideration was granted. So I walked down the hall and asked a more senior colleague of mine if he’s ever been party to or opposite of a successful motion for reconsideration. He too said that he couldn’t remember it ever working either.
So good luck with that, Rusty.
