SECTION “N” (3)
ORDER AND REASONS
Local Rule 7.5 of the Eastern District of Louisiana requires that a memorandum in
opposition to a motion be filed and that a copy be provided to the hearing judge eight days prior
to the date set for the motion to submitted. No memorandum in opposition to the following motion
set for submission on May 10, 2017, has been filed to date:
“Defendants’ Rule 12(b)(6) Motion to Dismiss for Failure to State a Claim” (Rec.
Accordingly, given that Ingrid Morris has failed to oppose the instant motion, and
otherwise finding the motion to have merit, IT IS ORDERED that the motion is hereby
GRANTED, and Plaintiff Ingrid Morris’ claims against Defendants Howmedica Osteonics Corp., 1
Stryker Corporation, and Stryker Sales Corporation are DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.
A motion for reconsideration of this Order, if any, must be filed within fourteen (14) days
of the date this Order is entered by the Clerk of Court. The motion must be accompanied by
opposition memorandum to the original motion. Because a motion for reconsideration would not
have been necessary had a timely opposition memorandum been filed, the costs incurred in
Defendant was incorrectly named as Howmedica Osteonics Corporation d/b/a/ Stryker
connection with the motion, including attorneys' fees, will be assessed against the party moving
for reconsideration. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 16, 83. A statement of costs conforming to Local Rule
54.3 shall be submitted by all parties desiring to be awarded costs and attorneys' fees no later than
eight days prior to the hearing of the motion for reconsideration.
New Orleans, Louisiana, this 30th day of June 2017.
