Williams v Akers and Thompson

Akers and Thompson sought review of the denial of their motions to reconsider their motions to dismiss. The panel dismissed the appeal for lack of jurisdiction. It held that Akers and Thompson designated the underlying denial of the motion to dismiss, not the order denying reconsideration, in the notice of appeal and the time to appeal the original denial had long passed making the attempted appeal untimely and the notice cannot be fairly read to include the reconsideration denial as the notice, docketing statement and a motion to stay all fail to identify the reconsideration order as an order Akers and Thompson wanted reviewed.
