IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
August 6, 2010
ENOCH WILDER, PLAINTIFF,
RICK SUTTON, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Proud, Magistrate Judge.
Before the Court is defendants Evans, Flagg, Ford, Pierce, Sutton and Watts' motion to strike plaintiff's reply to their reply to plaintiff's response to their motion for summary judgment. (Doc. 87). Defendants note that Local Rule 7.1(c) strictly forbids sur-replies.
A review of the record confirms that plaintiff has filed a sur- reply, which the Court characterizes as merely additional argument on the merits of the motion for summary judgment. (Doc. 86).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that, in accordance with Local Rule 7.1(c), the subject motion to strike (Doc. 87) is GRANTED. The Clerk of Court shall STRIKE plaintiff's sur-reply (Doc. 86).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
CLIFFORD J. PROUD U. S. MAGISTRATE JUDGE
