CASE TITLE

DOCKET ENTRY TEXT

This case was recently transferred to this Court's calendar. A review of the plaintiff's letters concerning Howard Towles, the counsel who filed an appearance on the plaintiff"s behalf, reveal that Mr. Towles was suspended from practicing law. The Illinois Attorney Registration & Disciplinary Commission website shows that Mr. Towles is not authorized to practice in Illinois. Accordingly, Mr. Towles's appearance is stricken. If the plaintiff wishes to move for appointment of counsel, he should first seek to obtain counsel by other means, and if those attempts are unsuccessful, he may file a motion for appointment of counsel, describing the need for counsel in this particular case. The defendants shall submit a written status report using the template attached to the order (it need not be a joint report) by 2/18/2011. Status hearing set for 3/21/2011 at 8:30a.m.
