IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
November 14, 2007
TRELLEBORG CORPORATION PLAN NO. 511 AND UNUM LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY OF AMERICA, AS THE ERISA CLAIMS ADMINISTRATOR, PLAINTIFFS,
KATHLEEN HEATH, TRELLEBORG CORPORATION, AND TRELLEBORG YSH, INC., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
Pending before the Court is Defendant Heath's motion to dismiss (Doc. 10). Heath's motion is a two-page pleading (three, if counting the certificate of service page) that does not contain any case law. Her motion merely states that "Plaintiffs are not 'persons empowered to bring a civil action' as contemplated under § 1132(a)(1)(b)" (Doc. 10, ¶ 2). Further, the motion violates the Local Rules as it does not contain a supporting brief as required by Local Rule 7.1(c).*fn1 Thus, the Court STRIKES Defendant Heath's motion to dismiss (Doc. 10).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
