The defendant's reconsideration motion in Elektra v. Barker was denied, for the reasons that:
-it was untimely;
-the authorities cited (Atlantic v. Howell, London-Sire v. Doe 1, and Capitol v. Thomas) are not "controlling" authorities; and
-the authorities cited were issued subsequent to the Court's decision, and therefore had not been "overlooked".
