DANIELS v. BURSEY

United States District Court, N.D. Illinois, Eastern Division


June 15, 2004.

JOHN DANIELS, et al., Plaintiffs,
v.
WAYNE BURSEY, et al., Defendants.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: MATHEW KENNELLY, District Judge

MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER

On May 19, 2004, the Court entered an order directing John Koresko V, one of the plaintiffs' attorneys, and Richard Order, one of the attorneys for a group of the defendants, to show cause why they should not be sanctioned for their personal attacks on each other made in documents filed with the Court. See Daniels v. Bursey, No. 03 C 1550, 2004 WL 1144046 (N.D. Ill. May 19, 2004). Both Mr. Koresko and Mr. Order have made submissions in response to the motion.

The Court declines to impose any further sanction upon either attorney. Though both Mr. Koresko and Mr. Order have provided a justification for their actions, both appear to acknowledge that their written comments that prompted the Court's criticism were inappropriate, and both have vowed to avoid similar conduct as the case progresses. Under the circumstances, the Court finds that the "warning" that was, in effect, administered by the Court's May 19 ruling, is a sufficient response to counsel's conduct. Conclusion

  For the reasons stated above, the rule to show cause issued to John Koresko V and Richard Order is discharged.
