What is a motion for reconsideration?
A motion for reconsideration is a legal request that allows you to ask the judge to reconsider his/her ruling. Depending on your state’s laws, a motion for reconsideration may be an option in situations:
- where you are not satisfied with the judge’s order and believe the judge did not consider or properly examine certain evidence; or
- new evidence is available that you were not able to present before the judge made a decision.
