Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Peter Berkowitz, with whom Roberto Roldán Burgos, Hato Rey, PR, was on brief, for appellees.

Before SELYA, Circuit Judge, CAMPBELL, Senior Circuit Judge, and STAHL, Circuit Judge.

SELYA, Circuit Judge.

In this action, brought pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1994), two defendants, José González and Domíngo Díaz Ortiz, appeal the district court's refusal to entertain their belated motions for summary judgment (in which each defendant sought to assert a qualified immunity defense). We find no abuse of discretion in the lower court's ruling and therefore affirm.
