IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS CHRISTOPHER M. HORTON, Petitioner, v. No. 3:17-00023-DRH UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Respondent. ORDER HERNDON, District Judge: Before the Court is frequent pro se litigator Christopher Horton’s Motion for Reconsideration of Leave to File Reply to the Government’s Response 1 (Doc. 16). Per Local Rule 7.1, “[r]eply briefs are not favored and should be filed only in exceptional circumstances. The party filing the reply brief shall state the exceptional circumstances.” SDIL-LR 7.1. A simple desire to respond to the opposing party’s argument is not sufficient. As such, Horton’s Motion for Reconsideration fails to demonstrate circumstances which warrant a reply. Accordingly, the Motion for Reconsideration (Doc. 16) is DENIED. IT IS SO ORDERED. Signed this 20th day of July, 2017. Digitally signed by Judge David R.
