IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
October 29, 2007
MARSHALL CLIFT, PLAINTIFF,
MEADOWBROOK FARMS COOPERATIVE, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
Pending before the Court is Defendant Meadowbrook Farms Cooperative's motion and supplementary motion to stay Counts I and II of Plaintiffs' second amended complaint. (Docs. 17, 22.) Specifically, Defendant moves the Court to stay these counts pending adjudication of identical claims in state court in St. Clair County, Illinois. As of this date, Plaintiff Marshall Clift has not responded to the motion. Pursuant to LOCAL RULE 7.1(g), the Court considers this failure an admission of the merits of the motion.*fn1 Thus, the Court GRANTS Defendant's motion and supplementary motion to stay Counts I and II of the second amended complaint. (Docs. 17,22.) The Court STAYS this matter pending the adjudication of the identical claims in state court in St. Clair County, Illinois.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
