STATE OF HAWAII, RESPONDENT,
CHRIS SLAVICK, PETITIONER.
Electronically Filed Supreme Court SCPW-13-0001127 03-APR-2013 10:15 AM
ORDER DISMISSING MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION
(By: Recktenwald, C.J., Nakayama, Acoba, McKenna, and Pollack, JJ.)
Upon consideration of petitioner Christopher Lee Slavick's letter to the court dated March 18, 2013, which was electronically filed on March 27, 2013, and which we review as a motion for reconsideration of the January 23, 2013 order denying without prejudice the motion for habeas corpus, and the record, it appears that the request for reconsideration is untimely. See HRAP 40(a) ("A motion for reconsideration may be filed by a party only within 10 days after the filing of the opinion, dispositional order, or ruling unless by special leave additional time is granted during such period by a judge or justice of the appellate court involved."); see also Setala v. J.C. Penney Co., 97 Hawaii 484, 485, 40 P.3d 886, 887 (2002) (a document is
deemed filed for purposes of a limitation deadline on the day it is tendered to a prison official by a pro se prisoner). Therefore,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the motion for reconsideration is dismissed.
