McCORMICK, et al., Defendants. ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) No. 13 C 2318 MEMORANDUM ORDER Although this action was filed on March 27, 2013, fully ten days then passed without delivery of a paper copy of the Complaint to this Court’s chambers (a delivery that this District Court’s LR 5.2(f) requires to be made on the next business day after the lawsuit is filed). So on April 8 this Court issued a short memorandum order directing that a copy be delivered forthwith, together with a $100 check payable to the Clerk of Court because of counsel’s violation of the LR. Now more than a week has gone by since then--still without compliance by plaintiffs’ lawyer.1 This Court cannot properly carry out its responsibilities in cases assigned to its calendar unless the lawyers discharge their responsibilities. There was no apparent justification for counsel’s initial noncompliance with LR 5.2(f), and there is surely no excuse for the most recent delay in compliance. 1 This Because the lawyer is an electronic filer, he received notification of the April 8 order when it was entered. action is dismissed. ________________________________________ Milton I.
