United States District Court, S.D. Illinois
October 17, 2005.
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
RUBEN ARROYO, Defendant.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. GILBERT, District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on defendant Ruben Arroyo's
("Arroyo") pro se motion to dismiss the charges against him
(Doc. 67). Arroyo filed this motion pro se, although he is
represented by attorney James Stern. A defendant does not have a
right to file his own motions when he is represented by counsel.
See Hayes v. Hawes, 921 F.2d 100, 102 (7th Cir. 1990) (per
curiam). The Court may strike as improper any such pro se
motions. See, e.g., United States v. Gwiazdzinski,
141 F.3d 784, 787 (7th Cir. 1998). The Court hereby ORDERS that Arroyo's
motion (Doc. 67) be STRICKEN.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
