On March 7, 2012, Defendants filed a response in opposition (docket entries #25, #26), and on March 14, 2012, S&A filed a reply. Now before the Court is Defendants’ motion to strike S&A’s reply (docket entries #30, #31) and S&A’s response in opposition (docket entry #35). Defendants assert that S&A’s reply expands the scope of the original motion and that replies are not permitted under the Local Rules. Although the Local Rules do not address whether parties may file reply briefs, they are not prohibited. Defendants are free to file a sur-reply, and they will receive an opportunity to respond to S&A’s reply during the preliminary injunction hearing. IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Defendants’ motion to strike (docket entry #30) is DENIED. IT IS SO ORDERED THIS 9TH DAY OF APRIL, 2012. /s/Susan Webber Wright UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
