Appeal from the United States District Court for
the Western District of Kentucky at Louisville.
Nos. 3:14-cv-00619; 3:14-cv-00628; 3:15-cv-00234;
Thomas B. Russell, District Judge.
Decided and Filed: May 9, 2017
Before: SILER, BATCHELDER, and GRIFFIN, Circuit Judges.
The court delivered an order. GRIFFIN, J. (pp. 3–5), delivered a separate opinion
concurring in the result only.
The plaintiff, Douglas Walter Greene, moves pursuant to Sixth Circuit Rule 45(c) to
reconsider the January 13, 2017, clerk’s orders denying him electronic filing privileges. Greene
sought leave to file electronically in December 2016, citing an overseas address and frequent
travel. Consistent with the rules of our court, the clerk denied the motions and directed him to
file in paper. See 6 Cir. R. 25(b)(2)(A). As grounds for reconsideration, Greene cites the relative
lack of financial and administrative resources as compared to the defendants.
While Greene has demonstrated an historic ability to navigate CM/ECF, he does not here
justify disregarding local rule. All future filings shall be made in paper. He may register with
PACER as a Public Interested Person to receive notices of docket activity and monitor real-time
case progress. The motions to reconsider are DENIED.
