CARLOS ROMIOUS, ET AL.
BRIAN WILLIAMS, ET AL.
Local Rule 7.5 of the Eastern District of Louisiana requires that memoranda
in opposition to a motion be filed eight (8) days prior to the date set for hearing on the
motion. No acceptable memorandum in opposition to Defendants’ motion to dismiss
pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6) (Rec. Doc. 39), set
for submission on February 10, 2021, was submitted. Although Plaintiffs filed a
motion for leave to file excess pages, the motion stipulated that the proposed
memorandum was “at least 75” pages, the opposition was untimely without an
included explanation for the untimeliness, and Plaintiffs failed to attach the

in opposition. Accordingly, Defendants’ motion to dismiss is deemed to be
unopposed. Further, it appearing to the Court that Defendants’ motion has
IT IS ORDERED that Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss (Rec. Doc. 39) is
hereby GRANTED. All claims asserted by Plaintiffs against Defendants John Bel
Edwards and Courtney N. Phillips are hereby DISMISSED with prejudice.

A motion for reconsideration of this order based on the appropriate Federal
Rule of Civil Procedure, if any, must be filed within thirty (30) days. The motion must
be accompanied by an opposition memorandum to the original motion. Because such
a motion would not have been necessary had a timely opposition memorandum been
filed, the costs incurred in connection with the motion, including attorney’s fees, may
be assessed against the party moving for reconsideration. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 16.
New Orleans, Louisiana, this 17th day of February, 2021.
