CLAIR COUNTY, ILLINOIS and MACON COUNTY, ILLINOIS, individually and on behalf of all other counties in the State of Illinois, Plaintiffs, v. No. 14-1320-DRH TRINITY HIGHWAYS, INC. and TRINITY HIGHWAY PRODUCTS, LLC, Defendants. ORDER HERNDON, District Judge: This matter is before the Court sua sponte for case management. On April 25, 2017, plaintiffs filed a reply to defendants’ response to their motion for clarification (Doc. 178). A review of the reply reveals that it violates Local Rule 7.1(c) in that the reply does not set forth “circumstances” much less “exceptional circumstances” as required by Local Rule 7.1(c). 1 Thus, the Court STRIKES the reply brief (Doc. 178). IT IS SO ORDERED. Signed this 3rd day of May, 2017. Digitally signed by Judge David R. Herndon Date: 2017.05.03 13:35:16 -05'00' United States District Judge 1 Local Rule 7.1(c) provides in part: “Reply briefs are not favored and should be filed only in exceptional circumstances. The party filing the reply brief should state the exceptional circumstances.” Local Rule 7.1(c) (emphasis in original).
