IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
August 4, 2010
CUSTOM BLENDING AND PACKAGING OF ST. LOUIS, LLC, PLAINTIFF,
STEVEN MOSER, JR., ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
This matter comes before the Court for case management. On August 3, 2010, Defendants DAC Industries, Inc., DAC Aerosol & Liquid Fill, Inc., and Litz filed a reply to Plaintiff's response to their motion for summary judgment (Doc. 105).
Local Rule 7.1 (c) states in part:
Reply briefs are not favored and should be filed only in exceptional circumstances. The party filing the reply brief shall state the exceptional circumstances.
Here, Defendants' reply brief does not state the exceptional circumstances as to why a reply brief is needed. Further, the reply violates Local Rule 7.1(c) in that it is seven pages.*fn1 Thus, the Court STRIKES the reply.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
