United States v. Laird

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS


January 7, 2008

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA PLAINTIFF,
v.
JOHN R. LAIRD, DEFENDANT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: David R Herndon Chief Judge United States District Court

ORDER

HERNDON, Chief Judge:

On January 4, 2008, the Court received two motions, a motion for bond reduction (Doc. 341) and a motion for specific discovery (Doc. 342), written by Defendant Laird. Defendant Laird is presently represented by Mr. Michael S. Ghidina. Because Defendant Laird is represented by counsel, the Court STRIKES the motions (Docs. 341 and 342). The Seventh Circuit has held that "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). Therefore, the Court insists that Laird only file pleadings through his attorney.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
