IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS EASTERN DIVISION
November 13, 2008
OTIS MCDONALD, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
CITY OF CHICAGO, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Milton I. Shadur Senior United States District Judge
On October 21, 2008 plaintiffs' counsel filed a "Motion To Narrow Legal Issues," intending to comply with this District Court's Rule (and this Court's website reference to that rule) by contemporaneously mailing a paper counterpart of that electronic filing to this Court's chambers. Counsel's express-mail transmittal was properly addressed to:
The Honorable Milton I. Shadur
Everett McKinley Dirksen Building Room 2388 219 South Dearborn Street Chicago IL 60604 Mysteriously the postal authorities stamped the envelope "Addressee unknown," and nearly two weeks later the mailing found its way back to counsel's office in Lisle, Illinois. This Court will put aside the Postal Service's apparent determination that this Court is a non-person, even though it has been occupying the Room 2388 judicial chambers for years--instead this memorandum is issued simply to reassure plaintiffs' counsel that no violation of court rules is to be placed at his doorstep.
