AFFTON FABRICATING & WELDING CO., INC., AND AMERISURE MUTUAL INSURANCE COMPANY, PLAINTIFFS/COUNTER-DEFENDANTS,
CAROLINA CASUALTY INSURANCE COMPANY, DEFENDANT/COUNTER-PLAINTIFF.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
Now before the Court is Affton Fabricating & Welding Co., Inc. and Amerisure Mutual Insurance Company's motion for leave to file reply brief instanter (Doc. 33). The Court DENIES at this time the motion. While the proposed reply brief states that exceptional circumstances as required by the Local Rules, it violates Local Rule 7.1(c) in that it is more than five pages in length.*fn1 Thus, the Court ALLOWS Affton Fabricating & Welding Co., Inc. and Amerisure Mutual Insurance Company's leave to file a reply brief that comports with the Local Rules.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
