IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
November 10, 2008
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA PLAINTIFF,
ANTAWON M. CHAIRS, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
On October 9, 2008, Chairs, pro se, filed a motion for alternate sentence (Doc. 36). Presently, Chairs is represented by Mr. Grant Shostak. Because Chairs is represented by counsel, the Court STRIKES the motion. 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 Chairs only file pleadings through his attorney.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
