UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
March 1, 2010
JANA FARRAR, PLAINTIFF,
RECEIVABLE MANAGEMENT SERVICES, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Phil Gilbert District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on Defendant Receivable Management Services's ("Receivable") Motion (Doc. 46) for leave to file a belated response to Plaintiff Jana Farrar's Motion for Attorneys' Fees (Doc. 44). Said motion was filed in response to this Court's Memorandum and Order (Doc. 45) to show cause of February 5, 2010. This matter also comes before the Court on Farrar's Motion (Doc. 48) for leave to file an amended motion for attorneys' fees.
The Court, being fully advised of the premises, is satisfied with Receivable's explanation as to the tardiness of its response to Farrar's original motion. Accordingly, the Court DISCHARGES its show cause order referenced supra. With that said, the Court strongly enforces its deadlines and cautions Receivable to heed the same in the future.
In light of Farrar's wish to file a new motion with an additional exhibit, the Court will reset the briefing schedule on the attorneys' fees issue. Namely, the Court DENIES as moot Farrar's original Motion for Attorneys' Fees (Doc. 44) and Receivable's Motion (Doc. 46) for leave to file a belated response thereto. The Court GRANTS Farrar's Motion (Doc. 48) for leave to file an amended attorneys' fees motion. Pursuant to Local Rule 7.1(g), Receivable shall have up to and including March 15, 2010, to file a response to Farrar's amended motion. Farrar's reply, if any, shall be filed no later than March 22, 2010.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
