Holkesvig v. Moore - No. 20120356
Randy Holkesvig appeals a district court order denying his motion to its vacate judgment in his libel and slander case against Christine Moore.
In 2011, Holkesvig's appeal of a district court's grant of summary judgment dismissing his suit against Moore and awarding her attorney's fees was summarily affirmed in Holkesvig v. Moore, 2011 ND 199, 806 N.W.2d 438. The district court denied Holkesvig's motion to vacate, finding the materials Holkesvig submitted in support of his motion indicate he is raising the same issues that were already addressed on appeal.
On appeal, Holkesvig argues the district court violated his constitutional rights when it denied his 2011 stay of execution, and the district court judge who denied his motion to vacate judgment has a conflict of interest because that judge had previously recused himself in other cases involving Holkesvig.
