IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
August 19, 2011
CURTIS A. SMITH, PLAINTIFF,
ILLINOIS ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL BOARDS, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge:
This matter comes before the Court for case management. On August 18, 2011, defendant Highland Community Unit School District No. 5 filed a reply to plaintiff's memorandum in opposition to the motion for summary judgment (Doc. 124). 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.
