Haqq v. Union Pacific Railroad Co.

United States District Court, Seventh Circuit

December 16, 2013

HAQQ, Plaintiffs,
v.
UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY, Defendants

MEMORANDUM ORDER

MILTON I. SHADUR, Senior District Judge.

Although this action was filed on November 26, 2013, plaintiffs' counsel has ignored the explicit directive of this District Court's LR 5.2(f) that requires the delivery of a paper copy of the complaint for the assigned judge's use within one business day after filing.[1] To underscore the importance of that requirement to the case management procedures followed by this Court, the first paragraph in its website repeats the requirement, adding that a delivery to this Court's chambers on the date of filing, if possible, would be appreciated (although such earlier delivery is not essential).

Despite the literal one-business-day requirement of LR 5.2(f), this Court has customarily allowed a grace period - at least a few working days, sometimes longer[2] - before the issuance of this type of memorandum order. In this instance that added time has elapsed without compliance by defendants' counsel, and this Court hereby orders:

1. that the missing copy of the initial pleading in this case be delivered to this Court's chambers forthwith and
2. that such delivery be accompanied by a check for $100 payable to the "Clerk of the District Court" by reason of the LR 5.2(f) violation, a requirement foreshadowed by the opening provision in this Court's website.
