THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN
GREEN BAY DIVISION
NATIONAL GRAPHICS, INC.,
Case No. 12-CV-1119
BRAX LTD., DYNAMIC DRINKWARE LLC,
CAPITOL CUPS, INC. and SERVICE LITHOPRINT, INC.
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION TO STRIKE AND
GRANTING LEAVE TO FILE A SUR-REPLY
Plaintiff National Graphics, Inc. has filed a motion to strike portions of Defendants’ Reply
in Support of the Motion for Partial Summary Judgment (ECF No. 64) or, alternatively, requests
leave to file a sur-reply to address arguments and evidence Plaintiffs contend was not contained in
Defendants’ motion for partial summary judgment. In response, Defendants Brax Ltd., Dynamic
Drinkware, LLC, and Service Litho-Print, Inc., argue that their reply presents only additional
support for arguments in its motion for summary judgment and does not present new arguments or
issues. However, Defendants do not object to allowing Plaintiff to file a sur-reply to address what
Plaintiff considers new arguments or issues as they will be part of Defendants’ opposition to
Plaintiff’s cross-motion for summary judgment in any event.
Rather than prematurely delve into the merits of this matter, I conclude that in the interest
of allowing all parties a full opportunity to make their arguments, Plaintiff’s motion to strike will
be denied and its request to file a sur-reply will be granted. I pause to note, however, that Plaintiff
should have attached a copy of its proposed sur-reply to its motion in order to comply with Local
Rule 7(i): “Any paper, including any motion, memorandum, or brief, not authorized by the Federal
Rules of Civil Procedure, these Local Rules, or a Court order must be filed as an attachment to a
motion requesting leave to file it.” Plaintiff is therefore directed to file its sur-reply within five days
of the date of this order.
SO ORDERED, this
day of December, 2013.
