PAUL J. KOMIVES MAG. JUDGE
ORDER CERTIFYING THAT APPEALS OF THIS COURT’S ORDERS [11, 13] ARE NOT TAKEN IN GOOD FAITH
JUDITH E. LEVY UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
On July 11, 2014, the Court issued an order dismissing plaintiff’s complaint. (Dkt. 11.) On July 24, 2014, plaintiff filed a motion for reconsideration of that order. (Dkt. 12.) On August 6, 2014, the Court issued a second order denying the motion for reconsideration. (Dkt. 13.)
On review of those orders, the Court neglected to certify whether an appeal of those orders would be taken in good faith pursuant to Fed. R. App. P. 24(a)(3)(A). At this time, the Court certifies that an appeal would not be taken in good faith, as both the applicable statute, 28 U.S.C. § 1963, and applicable Sixth Circuit precedent establish that plaintiff lacks any viable cause of action in federal court, and plaintiff has failed to state any other claim over which this Court could have jurisdiction.
