IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
April 17, 2006
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JERRY F. STRAHAN, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
On April 13, 2006, Jerry Strahan filed a pro se motion for transcripts (Doc. 134). The Court strikes Strahan's request based on the following. "A district court is entitled to insist that a represented party file papers only through counsel." Johnson v. United States, 196 F.3d 802, 805 (7th Cir. 1999). On October 5, 2005, the Court appointed attorney Steven Stenger to represent Strahan in this matter. Therefore, the Court insists that Strahan only file pleadings through his counsel. Accordingly, the Court STRIKES Strahan's pro se motion for transcripts (Doc. 134). The Clerk of the Court shall accept only the pleadings that are filed through attorney, Steven Stenger, on behalf of Strahan.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
David RHerndon United States District Judge
