IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
May 27, 2011
THE PRUDENTIAL INSURANCE COMPANY OF AMERICA, ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge:
This matter comes before the Court for case management. On May 26, 2011, defendants filed a reply in opposition to their motion to dismiss (Doc. 42).
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, the reply brief does not state the exceptional circumstances as to why a reply brief is needed. Thus, the Court STRIKES the reply.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
