(No) Surrender!

Here we go again:
In the well‐known “No Surrender” song released on his “Born in the U.S.A.” album, Bruce Springsteen noted, “Well, we made a promise we swore we’d always remember, no retreat, baby, no surrender.”1 Springsteen’s “no surrender” philosophy may be fine for a rock and roll song about the importance of being true to one’s own dreams and beliefs, but it is frequently unhelpful in litigation. It is particularly inapplicable and inappropriate here.
But defendant's counsel  has not taken heed of Magistrate Judge Goodman's musical warning -- he's filed yet another motion for reconsideration!

Does the good judge go Cheap Trick, or stay with Bruce?

Judge Goodman needs to elevate his game on the order he issues disposing of the new motion. The only way to do that would be to cite Jean Claude Van Damme's No Retreat, No Surrender.
