as a self-represented litigant, Robin Ashton has filed a
petition for rehearing of a December 13, 2016 Order, which
dismissed her appeal without prejudice. She states many
things, including that "the Defense's claims of the
case not being final are frivolous[.]" Through counsel,
Richard Hoinville has filed an objection, requesting the
instant petition's denial. Hoinville points out that
Ashton provides no reason for rehearing and that dismissal
was proper. We amend the caption to comport with M. R. App.
previously granted Richard Hoinville's motion to dismiss
because of the untimeliness of the appeal. We stated that
"[b]ecause the counterclaim is still awaiting trial,
there has been no final judgment entered." In the
absence of "clearly demonstrated exceptional
circumstances, " we do not grant rehearing of our orders
disposing of motions. M. R. App. P. 20(1)(d).
considered the petition and objection, we conclude that
Ashton has failed to establish the existence of any
exceptional circumstances. Ashton has a remedy of an appeal
after the Flathead County District Court decides the
remaining claim. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that the petition
for rehearing is DENIED.
Clerk is directed to provide a copy of this Order to counsel
