IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
July 14, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
KENNEDY M. RUSSELL,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge:
Pending before the Court is Russell's pro se motion to dismiss indictment for failure to charge an offense (Doc. 38). The Court STRIKES the motion to dismiss. At this time, defendant is still represented by Assistant Federal Public Defender Todd Schultz. See Johnson v. United States, 196 F.3d 802, 905 (7th Cir. 1999) ("A district court is entitled to insist that a represented party file papers only though counsel."). The Court does not allow hybrid representation. The Court DIRECTS the Clerk of the Court to accept only pleadings that are filed by defendant's attorney on behalf of Russell.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
